Now the president is making his moves as the sole appointing authority he is now disappointing, those who thought they are powerful now will see where the real power lies, i wonder what will become of the rank and file of team lacoste once Robert is done with the so called rallying point, just last week the so called pillar of strength was crying profusely half naked in front of the president, if you see the one you are trusting on kneeling before your enermy then you keep on barking nonsense zvanoitwa nana Mutsvangwa , its stupidity of the highest order. even on this forum these bufoons are still saying mandaza is lying , idiots , they cant even see the writting on the wall My advise to these overzealous Lacoste members , better join Tsvangirai , at least he has the balls to tell Mugabe to go and actually beat him in an election .

Transition to what exactly? . What is the objective of a transition? Simply moving power from Mugabe to Mnangagwa is not really a transition. Its more of the same only worse so.

The same thing is happening every day at Mons Zammit Street Msida. The council promised to install a camera more than six weeks ago. Was it installed., The amount of construction material, beds, sofas, old T.Vl sets, etc is appalling

In "many other countries" households are provided by multiple bins (colour coded) of either 120 litres or 240 litres. Domestic waste is collected every 2 weeks, even in summer where temperatures reach 36 C. People fill the bins with appropriate garbage bags that are tied to be leak free. You don't find people using shopping bags that are filled with garbage and left open as shown in the picture above. The additional bins are for paper, glass, bio water and bags are also provided for plastics and metal cans. Most of the other bins are collected on a monthly basis except the bio bin, which is collected weekly during the summer months. However, this means that you would have to have place reserved at home to keep 4 or 5 large bins out of sight. Bins are identifiable by a scanning system, weighed and you pay a tax per collection and per kg of water with the domestic bin being the most expensive, hence encouraging recycling. Bins can be left out the evening before collection and collection occurs around 7h30 am. The "big large bins" have been removed, at least in the country where I live, and your only option is to go to the directly to the waste disposal centre where disposal is free, except for the generic domestic waste.... which is weighed and charged for.

just the difference in time-efficiency by collecting in bulk, rather than per bag, will increase traffic flow and indirectly benefit the economy to a multitude of the cost.

The waste collection times should be twice a day. I live in St Julians and especially in Triq Il-Mensija the rubbish situation is horrible. People leave their rubbish out few hours after the collection time and they leave black bags out even those are not collected on that day. There are loads and loads of cats on that street and they rip the bags and eat what they find. The food and other trash is all over the streets. We have also a dog and it's horrible to take him out when he tries to eat everything. And yes we clean after him as well.

Mr Local Council, instead of playing around with CCTV footages and uploading videos on Facebook, why don't you take proper practical action when residents complain and find a compromise? It's obvious that a garbage skip can solve this simple problem. Are you expecting residents to leave work at specified times to suite you?

In all fairness if it weren't for the north Africans working in Malta with a legal permit cheap labor >no doubt< the country would end up smelling like a snake pit, actually i take my hat off to the Africans they are hard working people and do a fine job for your country. as the locals are just not interested,, yet they too are migrants in my country and i dare say many many work hard and are doing fine.

Its not because they are filthy, but simply because they temporary residents who simply sleep in their appartments, so they have no reason to contribute to a better neighborhood. A permanent resident with a family is more likely to contribute. But I agree, Maltese people can be just as bad , especially many dog owners!

We can understand the frustration for many of us expats having to clean up after some irresponsible locals, In Canada things are done properly & according to the law of the land, anyone caught disposing of any house hold rubbish would be liable, but with the help of proper installed cameras as evidence, yes i know some idiot is giving the Gozitans a bad name as a dirty nation, however inside their homes they are as clean as a whistle but outside boy that is a different story for another time for my book on retiring in peaceful tranquil lovely Gozo.

We too live in the vicinity of Qala, and the situation is getting from bad to worse, we hear of many visitors and tourists turning their nose up in disgust to the smell and broken bags all over the streets. It takes foreign residents to clean up the mess as the locals are too stuck up to clean up and make the place look respectable, needless to say QALA COUNCIL we are not amused., read between the lines clean up the place. The problem is the more these local toss posts are told not to chuck rubbish bags at street corners the more they persist, hence CCTV would sort them out with a hefty FINE ! JUST ONE QUESTION, WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO THE GREEN WARDENS? here to-day gone 2-morrow no doubt.

Once, our local council came up with the brilliant idea that collection will be at 14:00, so asked residents to take out garbage bags from 10am onwards. So what do people that work normal office hours do ? Do they have to take vacational leave? Local councils need to be realistic imo. Also, re Swieqi lc, I think its better that residents dispose of garabage in skips, then leaving them in the middle of the streets.

The waste collection system has become too complicated. In particular, the collection of organic waste in tiny white bags is causing more mess than the small amounts collected are worth. Often I see little white bags (at least in my area at Munxar) left out by well-meaning citizens at the wrong time of day because schedules are too complex. These messy bags then lie around for the next collection a week later. Also, as I have often commented before, short term rental unit landlords should be compelled to leave clear instructions about schedules for their tenants, and if necessary deal with rubbish on departure days themselves. After all they are running a for-profit business and they should be responsible for this aspect of their commercial activity, same as catering establishments. In Gozo there is the additional problem of weekend rentals, with mostly Maltese tenants (who should know better) leaving their rubbish all over the place prior to their departure. Sadly, owners of weekend homes in Gozo sometimes behave in this abhorrent manner as well because they are reluctant to bag up their rubbish well and take it with them. It's a problem, but solutions need to be found, eg. Sunday evening waste collection in areas which benefit from weekend tourism.

That scene is equal to our corner each and every day right below the noses of residents who are not responsible for that rubbish. Private videos were sent but all they do is talk to the perpaterators and that is it, life including dumping of rubbush infront of other residents continue.

Try and keep organic waste in the kitchen if you live in a flat in summer and you will be the one who goes out on the pavement in place of your garbage.

Why can' they solve the problem simply like many other countries by placing big garbage bins at specific places, so that people can put their garbage bins in them without having stray dogs and cats tearing the bags up. Indeed people cannot always stick to the collection times, but that would avoid a lot of hassle - first the trucks would only have to go to certain spots, then hopefully, there would be less litter all over the place and garbage bags being blown in the middle of the road when there are strong winds. Does it really require a genius to come up with that?

Here in Swatar we have the same problem. Most of the time its these foreigners who just use their apartment to sleep and don't give a damn about the neighborhood and our laws. And since most of them go back home for the weekend, it is not the first time garbage bags are left at the corner for an entire weekend. And to make matters worse, Swatar does not even have its own local council, even though there are more residents than other localities! But hey, we need 20,000 more foreigners , as long as the developers and investors are raking in their millions, who cares about the Maltese people!

Correct, but it can work the other way too. Mine says 7am, but it's nearly always collected by 6.30am.

Why single out domestic waste dumpers. Get a grip of the restaurantuers who dump their business waste on the street EVERY end of business, to lie in the streets until their garbage truck comes at whatever time.. People don't and will not stand and wait for the unreliable timing of the garbage truck, they have lives to lead, children to prepare for school, jobs to attend. The garbage trucks provide a good service but it does not run to NASA timing programmes.

You are partly right, but whoever lives in swieqi is a swieqi resident and should abide by the regulations so its no excuse really. Maltese or foreign those who throw rubbish out at idd times of the day should be fined. The truth is that Swieqi and the rest of Malta suffers from a general lack of civic sense and discipline and that enforcement is basically non-existant.

As I always said and as I keep reiterating, garbage collection should happen at night starting 1AM and people should be able to start taking the garbage bags out starting 8PM of the day before.

Maltese people who take out their rubbish when they're not supposed to with the excuse of 'because the bag is stinking' are egoistic, spoiled, and not too intelligent. It doesn't take much thought to seal organic waste in separate bags before throwing them in the rubbish bag. Of course if they just throw remaining food into the rubbish bin, it's going to stink, but there are solutions, and no rubbish bag needs to stink - not even after 2 days in August, if you dispose of organic leftovers in an intelligent way.

That's well & good but what about the refuse and rubbish thrown all over the street corners particularly in Qala not far from the local church, i reckon the local council should get off that big fat bum and do the job they are getting paid for by the tax payers. CCTV should be installed to catch the culprits and take them all to the cleaners. Dave Local resident

You are quite correct with your comment and meanwhile the vermin/cats and or stray dogs rip the bags apart. The refuse collectors have asked me to place my rubbish 50m away outside a neighbours door on a main road. I like my neighbours and they seem to like me, so why should I insult them because the refuse people are lazy ? I don't live on a narrow road or a cul-de-sac either... Once a year a road sweeper shows up expecting a Christmas tip too. Truly, unbelievable.

Frankly speaking the system sucks. We don't live anymore in past times where men would work, whilst women stay at home and can bring the garbage out just in time. In most modern families both partners work, many with shift systems or flexi hours. This makes it very difficult for many to obey garbage collection times. That is of course besides the point that having all the garbage bags even for a few hours on the road is just a disgusting sight, more like medieval times.

Seems there's only one camera in action. Pity there aren't more, as the Council could have spotted the person who dumped a toilet complete with flushing, and a chair, in Ibrag Road this weekend. Just a few metres up from the parish church, too.
