The festive season at Malta Freeport Terminals has taken on a distinct recycling theme, as employees created a Christmas tree, snowmen and sleighs for Santa using items that would normally be discarded.
Eighteen Freeport staff from various departments embraced the principle of reuse and repair and sought to give a new life to several items including tyres, pallets, wood and other forms of waste. The items are on display at the Freeport’s pedestrian gate area. These initiatives were taken as Malta Freeport Terminals participated once again in European Week for Waste Reduction with the theme of this year being ‘Reuse and Repair – Give it a new life!’
Staff also took part in a clean-up activity of Birzebbuga, where the Freeport is located, and Malta Freeport Terminals also donated four computers to the local council. Two of these will be used in the library, while the others will be installed at the Birzebbuga Day Centre.
A comprehensive Waste Separation Management System is in place at the Freeport, where waste including metal, rubber, paper, oil drums, wood and cardboard is separated and disposed of responsibly.
