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.
