      MEDIA RELEASE 01/11/2002




      Alternattiva Demokratika has welcomed the Progett Skart's concept of a waste transfer station from Gozo to Malta, through which municipal and other types of waste  such as hazardous waste would be able to be transferred for land filling in Malta.


      Alternattiva Demokratika spokesperson for the Environment Mark Causon said "AD agrees with the station as long as it is constructed in the area with least environmental impact and in accordance with planning regulations."


      "Landfilling of waste should only be the last resort. In the first instance, waste must be reduced. The reduction of waste is a priority of the Green Party. According to a survey of the National Office of Statistics most of the waste generated can be recycled and re used.  In fact organic waste makes amounts to 59% per cent of the total waste generated by Maltese households. 7.5% of waste is made up of Paper, cardboard and cartons, 5% of the waste generated is made of textile material and 4% is made up of glass. Other policies such as polluters pay principle and fiscal measures that encourage cleaner technology are vital to reduce waste."


      Mark Causon added “Waste separation is also vital for the success of recycling. Waste separation should take place at the local level and Local Councils should be involved in the operation of this system. A serious education campaign is one of the most effective manners to make waste separation a success."

      Alternattiva Demokratika laqghet bi pjacir il-kuncett ta’waste transfer station minn Ghawdex ghal Malta li bih se jigi trasportat l-iskart municipali u skart iehor bhal dak tossiku biex jintrema f’landfill f’Malta.


      Il-kelliem ghall-Ambjent ta’ l-AD Mark Causon qal “ L-Alternattiva Demokratika taqbel ma l-istazzjon sakemm dan jinbena skond r-regoli ta’ l-ippjanar u l-impatt fuq l-ambjent jkun minimu.


       “Rimi ta’ l-iskart ghandha tkun l-ahhar soluzzjoni.Qabel kollox l-iskart ghandu jigi mnaqqas.Din hija priorita assoluta ghall-Alternattiva Demokratika. Skond survey tan- National Office of Statistics il-maggoranza ta’ l-iskart jista jigi riciklat jew uzat mill-gdid. Fil-fatt skart organiku jaghmel 59% mill-iskart kollu iggenerat mill-Maltin.7.5% hu maghmul minn karta u kartun,5% materjal tat-tessuti,u 4% hgieg.Policies ohra li ghandhom jidhlu fis-sehh biex jitnaqqas l-iskart huma l-polluters pay principle u incentive fiskali li jinkoragixxu uzu ta’ teknologiji li jhammgu anqas.


      Mark Causon zied jghid “Seperazzjoni ta’ l-iskart hija vitali ghas-success tar-riciklagg.Seperazzjoni ta’ l-iskart ghandha ssir fl-livell lokali u ghandom jigu involuti l-Kunsilli Lokali fl-operazzjoni tas-sistema.Kampanja edukattiva serja hija mod efettiv biex seperazzjoni ta’ l-iskart tkun success”
