National bottle and can recycling scheme to begin on November 14

Pin It

National bottle and recyclingPeople will be asked to deposit bottles and cans in special recycling machines dotted across the country starting from November 14, when a much-delayed beverage container recycling scheme finally goes live.

The scheme, which is intended to bump up bottle recycling rates in Malta, will see consumers pay a marginally higher price when buying drinks and then receive a voucher equivalent to that 10c price bump when they deposit the bottle or can in one of 320 specialised ‘reverse vending machines’ being set up around the country. 

Around 85 per cent of those machines should be in place by the November 14 launch date, allowing the scheme to go live, Circular Economy Malta said in a statement on Saturday.
