Watch: Waste separation – is it really happening?

Two men were filmed putting black rubbish bags and grey rubbish bags into the same rubbish truck by someone who has sent the footage to Newsbook.com.mt.

NET News had reported that a substantial amount of organic waste bags were mixed with non-recyclable material when collected by employees in early November.

Former St Paul’s Bay Mayor Graziella Galea had remarked that the photos showed the “scheme’s success” on waste collection. About 70% of Maltese and Gozitan households received their free container intended to collect organic waste. Environment Minister Josè Herrera had confirmed this in comments given to this newsroom. In a statement, Wasteserv said that more containers were handed out.
