Next Sunday WasteServ are holding an Open Day at the Gozo Waste Transfer and Material Recovery Facility in Tal-Kus, Xewkija, between 10am and 5pm.
WasteServ is inviting everyone to join them for tours of the facilities, with fun activities for all the family and a chance to win a 7-day holiday for 2 (adult + child ) to Garda with the opportunity of visiting Gardaland (terms & conditions apply).
The facility represents an investment value of roughly €10 million which was co-financed through EU funds (Cohesion Fund 2007-2013).
The facility caters for a variety of waste streams. Dry recyclables are sorted and baled at this facility prior to further treatment or export. Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) is compacted in hermetically sealed containers and transferred to Malta for further treatment. Bulky waste is shredded where possible, compacted or baled and transferred to Malta.
