Wasteserv Malta - Home Collection
Home Collection

The collection of mixed waste from homes (black bags) is the responsibility of the local council concerned. Once the waste has been collected it is taken either to the Ghallis landfill for disposal or to the Sant’ Antnin Waste Treatment Plant for processing. To find out more about how your waste is processed, please visit the Mechanical Treatment Plant page.


The collection of recyclable material from homes is also organised by local councils and the majority of this is brought to Sant’ Antnin where it is sorted, prepared for export and then sold for recycling. To find out more about what happens to your recycling please visit the Material Recovery Facility page.


When is my waste collected?

With the help of local councils and private waste collection schemes, we have put together Waste Collection Schedules containing the collection details of both recyclable and general waste. Please download the Malta or Gozo schedule from the links below.

What can I put in my recycling bag?

At the moment, the green or grey recycling bags may contain plastic, paper, cardboard and metal cans or tins. Glass must still be deposited at the Bring In or Civic Amenity sites, with the exception of certain localities where separate collection of glass from homes has been introduced.
