2,100 Bags Of Rubbish Per Week Gathered In Comino

Minister for Tourism Clayton Bartolo took to social media to state that, through full collaboration with the Ministry for Gozo, the cleaning service in Blue Lagoon has been strengthened. 

‘Throughout the past weeks, an average of 2,100 bags of waste were collected per week. I wish to thank all the workers involved’, wrote Minister Bartolo.

This comes after Blue Lagoon and Comino at large were once again put under the spotlight by activists who critiqued the ‘shabby’ state the island was being left in.

Last week, Nadur Nadif had issued a post calling out the negligence surrounding Comino, calling it an island with no vision.

On Monday, Rubalies said: “I was completely wrong, I have to admit it. It was without bad intention at a time with a lot of excitement. In the moment, we saw it as natural, but outside a commotion has formed. I have to apologise, learn from this, and understand that when you are president you have to be more careful.”

Hermoso herself spoke out after the incident, saying that she did not enjoy it. She later told AFP that despite the incident, the president’s behaviour with all of the players had always been outstanding and it was ‘a natural gesture of affection and gratitude.’
