All persons or commercial companies who introduce goods into Malta and Gozo that inlude some type of packaging material are required by law to join a Waste Packaging Scheme such as GreenMT. The packaging that is included with your products will end up in the waste stream once it is discarded. GreenMT organises collection and recycling contractors to pick up all types of packaging from the waste stream and recycle it on your behalf according to your legal obligations. We take care of your waste management obligations while you take care of your business.
All GreenMT scheme members can benefit from a free packaging waste pickup.
To qualify you will need to be a member that places over 500Kg per year on the market. Pickups are by appointment only. Cardboard and Wood is collected every forthnight and Plastic waste is collected monthy. Please call 9924 6925 to set an appointment or email email@example.com.
All collected waste packaging is recycled at authorised facilities and you will be given a receipt.
GRTU (Malta Chamber of SMEs) together with it's subsidiary GreenMT has been very active in developing a national policy for implementing a comprehensive solution to WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment). The aim is to create a not-for-profit scheme that will collect and recyle discarded electrical and electronic equipment on behalf of businesses who are members of the scheme.
GreenMT has been very proactive in discussions and actively spearheaded this initiative together with the Minister for the Environment, the Hon. Leo Brincat. The most awaited outcome of this initiative will be the removal of the ECO Tax system. The unfair ECO tax system is going to be replaced with a much better solution where costs included in the price of items will reflect and be proportional with the actual recycling costs of the products.
