Want the experience? Just go to Xlendi. Yes, one of Gozo’s prime tourists’ sites is changing into a walk-through landfill. Bring in sites have been burnt. Open garbage bags with waste spread all over, bulky waste on pavements are the rule of the day especially over weekends. Suggestions and possible solutions have been put forward by many, including young reporters since at least 2014. It was on the media and the relative authorities were also contacted back then. Unfortunately things not only did not improve but the situation has worsened over time. Back in 2014 bring-in sites had been ‘converted’ into open air dumping sites. Careless persons actually made them inaccessible by depositing mounds of garbage bags and rubbish at the base and all around the recycle containers. Numerous residents and young reporters included suggested that security cameras are installed to stop irresponsible dumping of non-recyclable waste but no cameras. The first step is to reduce waste, recycle all that is possible and be responsible that the items one has to throw away are disposed of in the right way and at the right place.
