Tal Kus - Gozo Transfer Station
Quality & Environmental Policy

In line with Malta’s sustainable environmental and waste management strategy, Wasteserv seeks to provide a national service through its waste recovery and treatment processes employed at the Transfer Station in Tal-Kus, Xewkija, Gozo. The facility has been established to: (i) sort and bale dry recyclables, (ii) compact municipal solid waste & organic waste, and (iii) shred bulky and green waste. The resulting fractions are thereafter transferred to other designated Wasteserv facilities or to third parties as applicable.

 

Wasteserv’s critical objectives are to achieve and enhance customer satisfaction, protect the environment, and provide a reliable yet environmentally aligned waste management services to (Gozitan) waste carriers, producers and brokers.

 

Through its operations at Tal-Kus and the various supporting branches, Wasteserv will strive to:

 

  • Comply with Environmental Permit EP 028/15;
  • Maximise the extraction of dry recyclables;
  • Use the facility efficiently;
  • Monitor electricity consumption;
  • Implement emergency preparedness measures to minimise and control the risk of fire and spills;
  • Attain positive feedback from waste carriers, producers and brokers;
  • Minimise customer complaints;

 

These objectives are reviewed on a quarterly basis and their status is discussed in Management Review Meetings.

 

To implement this policy we have adopted a management system based on the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015.

 

We are committed to continually improve our management system and its effectiveness constantly and repeatedly through established mechanisms. This policy shall be communicated to, and understood by, all personnel within the organisation. We will also communicate this policy to the public, and all visitors and contractors at the facility.

 

This Policy is reviewed periodically to ensure that our focus on customer requirements and environmental preservation is maintained, and that the measures of our promise to our customers are achieved.
