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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
Your carbon footprint is how much Carbon Dioxide you produced in your day to day activitues. All you need to do is to key in some data about your lifestyle and instantly calulate your carbon footprint !
You can also compare your carbon footprint to other countries and to the accepted sustainable average.
The calculator is intended to make you aware of what adds most to your carbon footprint.
In a lifetime the average Maltese person will throw away 600 times the amount of his or her adult weight in garbage. For example, a 90Kg adult adult will leave a trash legacy of 54,000 kilos.
Green MT has warned that deposit schemes can actually increase recycling rates but that this is not always the case, adding that they have been shown to be costly and ineffective in unique societal and economic contexts.
The waste management firm said that the government was mulling the introduction of Deposit Return Systems (DRS) for plastic bottle recycling, but that when this had been proposed in 2006, it was shelved after heavy opposition from producers, retailers and other stakeholders.

Is sena 2015 gabet maghha sfidi godda fejn jidhol l-operat logistiku tal-Iskema wara li is snin 2013 u 2014 intuzaw biex nimmitigaw fejn hsibna li ma kienx qed jaghti rizultat mixtieq.
Fis sena 2015, 28 Kunsill Lokali kienu eligibbli li jippartecipaw f’dawn l-Awards. Ghaxra min dawn kienu lokalitajiet Ghawdin u l-kumplament kienu lokalitajiet Maltin. Il-kriterja ghal rebh ta’ dawn l-awards fejn jidhol Kunsill Lokali huwa l-ammont ta’ gbir li jsir permezz tal –borza il-griza u li jingabar mill bring in Site. Dan l-ammont jigi diviz bejn il-popolazzjoni fil-lokalita biex jinhareg ammont per capita.
Jien inhares lejn dan il-process qishu ghandek tim tal-futbol li qed jiehu sehem go kampjonat. Irid ikollok coach tajjeb u tim tajjeb biex tasal ghal rizultat. Ovvjament hekk jigri anke f’dan ir-rigward. Sena wara l-ohra qedghin naraw klassifika finali li ghandha disinn.
Mitt 28 Kunsill lokali eligibbli ghal dawn lawards gbarna 4986 tunnelata ta materjal ricikklabbli.
