Following the publication of a report by the National Audit Office (NAO) of Malta on the situation in the recycling sector in Malta in 2019, with a special focus on plastics, ACR+ member WasteServ Malta confirms that the implementation of most of the NAO’s suggestions are already in full swing. The report outlines a number of recommendations including the introduction of the polluter pays principle, the need for strategic investments, and the rationalisation of current packaging waste scheme agreements, all of which are now included in the Long-Term Waste Management Plan (2021 – 2030).

WasteServ Malta explains that efforts are bearing fruits already. Despite the severe impediments put forward by the COVID pandemic, Malta’s figures, when it comes to the sale of recyclables in 2020, increased by 78% when compared to the same period in 2019.
