Malta, involving ACR+ member WasteServ Malta, recycled 15% of the country's waste in 2021, an increase of five percentage points over the previous 12 months. This confirms how Malta is reversing the stagnant trends defining this sector for numerous years. It is even more significant when one considers that the long-term investment in waste management infrastructure is still in its initial phases of implementation. This positive trend is expected to be maintained in 2022 and 2023.
Despite this improvement, a nationwide cultural shift is necessary to reach Malta’s mandatory EU targets. It is now confirmed that the aggressive strategy changes and short-term investments implemented by WasteServ have yielded the anticipated positive spikes in performance, and more improvements are expected later this year as a new fully automated EUR 4 million recycling facility enters operation.
