2.6 Million Tonnes Of Solid Waste Generated In Malta 2022
In 2022, Malta saw a 4.4% increase in solid waste generation compared to 2021, reaching 2.6 million tonnes.
Hazardous waste rose by 6.1%, while non-hazardous waste increased by 4.4%, notably from construction and demolition activities and household waste.
Waste treatment also increased by 6.1%, with rises in recovery-recycling and disposal-other, but declines in recovery-backfilling and recovery-energy recovery.
Treatment within Malta saw a notable increase in recovery-recycling but a decrease in recovery-backfilling. Overseas treatment saw an increase in recovery-recycling but a decrease in disposal-landfill.
Waste input at various facilities increased, including the Tal-Kus and Malta North Mechanical-Biological Treatment Plant.
However, incineration at the Marsa Thermal Treatment Facility decreased. Inert mineral waste treatment recorded changes, with declines in backfilling but increases in recycling and disposal at sea.
Separate waste collection experienced declines in most categories except for door-to-door glass collection, which increased by 0.9%. Notably, Civic Amenity Sites and organic waste collection experienced significant drops.
Mariah Steals The Show At Valletta Carnival
Young Mariah had the time of her life and gave an amazing performance during this year’s Valletta Carnival.
Dancing with Shake Dancers in Section C, Mariah, who has Down syndrome and ADHD, did not shy away from the challenge at all – performing in front of thousands who convened at the capital city.
Mariah’s mother issued a thanks to the Shake Dancers team for bringing in Mariah and having the patience to teach her the entire routine.
The little dancer did not let her condition keep her from doing what she loves doing the most.
Well done Mariah!
