Home Collection

The collection of both organic waste and mixed waste from homes is the responsibility of the local council concerned. Once the waste has been collected it is taken either to the Maghtab Environmental Complex or to the Sant’ Antnin Waste Treatment Plant for processing, treatment and disposal. To find out more about how your waste is processed, please visit the Mechanical Treatment Plant page and the Maghtab Environemental Complex page.

 

 

 

The collection of recyclable material from homes is also organised by local councils and is brought to the Maghtab Environemntal complex 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  Maghtab Environemental Complex page, recyclables from Gozo are sorted and baled at Tal-Kus and exported by third parties directly from there.

 

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.
