As from 1st September 2016, there is a new procedure implemented for all Civic Amenity Sites. The scope of this reform is to ensure that the CA sites only receive household waste given that these sites were set up to accept domestic waste.
Please click here to access a leaflet with more information on how to dispose of your waste at any of the CA Sites.
Still unsure with the procedure? Kindly view the FAQ's.
Civic Amenity sites are facilities where the public can bring and discard various types of bulky household waste, domestic hazardous waste as well as recyclable materials.
Unlike Bring-In Sites, where only paper, plastic, metal and glass can be delivered, Civic Amenity sites also cater for the disposal of:
- Furniture, mattresses, carpets and clothing
- White goods such as fridges, cookers and microwaves
- Electronics such as computers, monitors, mobile phones, printers, electronic toys and tools
- Garden waste
- Edible oil and lubricant oils
- Batteries, spent bulbs and neon tubes
- Expired medicines and used syringes
- Solvents, chemicals, paint and other hazardous waste
- Small quantities of household construction waste such as stone and tiles
The waste collected at these sites is either exported overseas for treatment, treated locally, re-used for other purposes or recycled. In fact the purpose of these centres is to optimise the collection of certain types of waste and increase the recovery of secondary materials.
Please note that there are certain restrictions with the amount of waste disposed of at one time, for more information on this matter please contact our Customer Care Centre on Freephone 8007 2200
There are 6 operational Civic Amenity Sites which are situated at Mriehel, Hal Far, Luqa, Maghtab, Tal-Kus, Xewkija Gozo and a new site recently opened in Ta' Qali. The new facility in Ta' Qali has an in-vessel composter for the on-site enclosed treatment of green waste.
Civic Amenity sites are open from Monday to Sunday (including Public Holidays) between 7.30am and 5.30pm.
