Over the past weekend at the Nadur Spontaneous Carnival in Gozo, a group of masked carnival-goers caught everyone’s attention by doing something quite unusual: they started building a wall in the middle of a street.

Amid the festivities, a video captured this group actually laying down bricks, turning a typical carnival activity into an unexpected construction project. This scene was particularly striking as costumed attendees watched in surprise, unsure of what to make of this unusual act.

This wall-building effort was just one of many unconventional stunts that make the Nadur Carnival stand out in the Maltese calendar. Known for its spontaneous and often wild displays, the carnival invites participants to engage in creative and sometimes bizarre acts that challenge the norms of traditional celebrations.

This particular instance of carnival-goers turning to masonry in the midst of the carnival’s chaos not only showcased their creativity but also added to the event’s reputation as one of the most unique and unpredictable festivals in Malta, leaving a lasting impression on both participants and onlookers alike.

2.6 Million Tonnes Of Solid Waste Generated In Malta 2022
Feb 13 2024 Share

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.
