WasteServ opens first ReUse centre aimed at giving new life to second-hand items

WasteServ has officially opened its first ReUse centre in Ħal Far, where second-hand items in good condition will be made available to the public by means of donation.

In a recent Facebook post, Minister for the Environment, Energy and Enterprise Miriam Dalli highlighted that the centre will allow members of the public to purchase good-quality second hand items at a lesser cost, with the donation going to a WasteServ fund for environmental initiatives.

Dalli, together with Parliamentary Secretary Chris Bonett and WasteServ CEO Richard Bilocca inaugurated the centre’s opening, explaining that one may find everything from ceramics and toys to pet accessories, musical instruments and even furniture at the centre.

The €170,000 investment will see to the opening of more centres of this sort in Luqa, Imrieħel and Gozo.

This project is partially financed by the European Union, as part of the Cohesion Funds – Structural Funds and European Investment 2014-2020.

Minister calls for investigation of missing elderly man; PN 'outraged' by case

Minister for Active Ageing Jo Etienne Abela has called for an internal investigation after an elderly resident of St. Vincent De Paul was reported missing on Tuesday June 28th.

The institution’s administration reported the case of the missing resident, Karmenu Fino, to the authorities and searches start immediately after. In a statement, it was revealed that the concerned Ministry was informed of the most recent developments and, as searches continue, it has ordered further investigation to establish the facts and recommendations into the case.

Meanwhile, the Nationalist Party has expressed its outrage in the fact that only one nurse was responsible for an entire hall of elderly individuals in the midst of a concerning staff shortage.

In her own statement, PN speaker for Active Ageing Paula Mifsud Bonnici said that the Opposition is treating this case with the utmost sensitivity, calling upon the Government to further product and care for Malta’s elderly community.

The investigation is being led by retired judge Geoffrey Valenzia.

WATCH: Hedgehog saved by passer-by after getting stuck in can

Malta Daily has been sent footage of a hedgehog caught in a can which was probably discarded irresponsibly, with the individual behind the lens eventually saving the distressed creature.

The clip begins by showing the hedgehog scurrying in an attempt to remove itself from the can to no avail, with president of the Federazzjoni Kaccaturi Nassaba Konservazzjonisti (FKNK) heroically approaching the creature and saving it from further injury.

The video serves as a wake-up call for whoever inappropriately disposes of their thrash. Properly disposing of your thrash does not only contribute to a clean environment but saves the local ecosystem from potential threats and danger.
