Civic Amenity Sites are supervised facilities where members of the public can bring and discard a variety of household bulky waste. Unlike Bring-In Sites, where only paper, plastic, metal and glass can be delivered, these sites cater for separate disposal of domestic bulky waste such as tyres, refrigerators, electronic products, waste from DIY activities and garden waste.
The purpose of these centres is to establish service facilities to optimise the collection of certain types of waste and increase the recovery of secondary materials.
There are 5 operational Civic Amenity Sites and are situated at Maghtab,
Mriehel, Hal Far, Luqa and Xewkija (Gozo). These facilities are open
every day (from Monday to Sunday) between 7.30am and 5.30pm including
weekends and Public Holidays. For information regarding the individual CA Sites, please click on the following links:
