Collection of Bulky Waste From Your Doorstep

Collection of Bulky Waste From Your Doorstep
Jun 5 2024 Share

Disposing of bulky waste has long posed a challenge for those dedicated to maintaining a clean environment. Fortunately, environmental awareness has grown among the Maltese and Gozitan populations. To support this, essential collection services have been established.

Today, residents need to call their Local Council to provide details about the bulky waste they want collected. The Council then informs them when to place it outside for collection. This system is designed to be practical and efficient, requiring minimal effort from residents to maintain its success.

The impact of this service can already be seen in various localities. Many areas previously littered with bulky waste have seen significant improvements and, while some spots remain problematic, the plan aims to eliminate the issue entirely for the benefit of residents and their families.

Since January 2023, the collection and transportation of domestic waste have been organised on a regional basis. This change addressed the previous inconsistencies in collection schedules across different localities, resulting in a unified timetable for waste disposal.

The overarching goal is to establish a single, practical, and efficient waste collection system for Malta and Gozo. Protecting this system is crucial. Increased understanding and appreciation of this service’s value will lead to cleaner streets and squares, enhancing the environment for residents and tourists alike.

€250,000 To Help Paralympic Athletes In Malta

€250,000 To Help Paralympic Athletes In Malta
Jun 5 2024 Share

Minister Clifton Grima announced a financial support scheme for Paralympic athletes, aimed at helping them acquire necessary sports equipment for training and competitions.

SportMalta will allocate €250,000 to the Maltese Paralympic Committee for this purpose. Recognising the unique challenges faced by Paralympic athletes in obtaining specialised equipment, Minister Grima emphasised that this initiative empowers athletes to reach their full potential and represent Malta internationally.

Many Paralympic athletes struggle with financial barriers in obtaining the appropriate sports equipment, despite existing support mechanisms like sponsorships and grants.

These often fail to fully meet the diverse needs of athletes across different sports disciplines. Julian Bajada, Secretary of the Maltese Paralympic Committee, highlighted the Committee’s efforts to provide athletes with the best opportunities, while Keith Bartolo, Vice Chairperson of SportMalta, discussed the ongoing financial and resource support provided to these athletes.

The government is committed to promoting inclusion in sports and assisting Paralympic athletes in achieving their goals. This initiative not only offers financial aid but also reinforces the values of equality and inclusion in society.
