For the past years “Zero Waste Future” has been very successful in Malta with the funding from the Coca-Cola Foundation.
The results of this year’s “Zero Waste Future” (July 2022 – April 2023) are impressive! The waste characterization study, which is happening for the first time in Malta, was expanded to cover all three cities of Cottonera (Birgu, Cospicua, and Senglea) covering 66 sampling points over 3 sampling sessions. The positive impact of DRS on minimising the amount of residual waste was visible. 50 HoReCa members were enrolled in the Responsible Coastal Business Network and 17 tonnes of PET waste was collected and recycled in cooperation with Festivals Malta and the NGO Zibel. Additionally, more than 4 million citizens were reached through awareness raising activities.
