Various Nationalist Party MPs have took to social media to call out the seemingly ongoing problem with trash and rubbish around the Maltese islands.
Former Opposition leader Adrian Delia posted an image of the BCRS vending machines, with one particular set of vending machines having broken glass and other rubbish on the floor in front of them.
‘A picture speaks a thousand words’, wrote the MP. ‘The machines w never needed. Turning streets into trash zones and people into beggars’.
The issue was also highlighted by Darren Carabott, who shared images of unwanted items and other trash thrown into Maltese countrysides. ‘The rubbish issue in our country is continuing to grow. 8 months ago, a reform which is not working was put in place.’
PN MP Alex Borg also took to social media to offer various recommendations to address the situation, addressing not just trash pick up schedules and systems but further enforcement.
The issue had also been highlighted by Eve Borg Bonello, who shared footage of abandoned areas as well as rat infestations.
