“400 contractors are at a standstill; there is no legal dumping solution” – MDA

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Currently, 400 excavation and demolition contractors are at a standstill as they cannot find a legal dumping solution “at any price.”

This was stated by the Malta Developers Association, which lamented that now “it is no longer a situation of escalating dumping costs pushing up property prices. Members are not finding any dumping sites that will accept their construction waste at any cost.”

The association urged the Government to take action. This is particularly since, according to the association, this problem is not being caused only through private construction projects. It is also being caused through public projects including national
infrastructure and Housing Authority projects that are ongoing.
