Organic waste collection in Gozo started in September 2016. The general public was provided with leaflets explaining how, what and when to dispose of their waste besides door to door explanation. Unfortunately, it is clear that not all are complying. Black garbage bags are being taken out even on days when these are not collected and as a result heaps of rubbish bags pile up. On contacting a local council it was explained that though signs and stickers are being used, it seems to be to no avail. Maybe is it time for fines for repeated offenders?
