The facility is part of Was- teserv's Ecohive complex at Magħtab and will be able to process up to 40,000 tonnes of recyclable waste. This will lead to the closure of WasteServ's Sant'Antnin facility in Marsaskala, where, 20,000sq.m of land will be transformed into a public open space. The Magħtab facility has cost €4 million and is partly funded by the EU. It will sort the differ- ent types of metal, cardboard, and plastic using specially de- signed machinery. Increased automation will improve processing efficiency from 30% to 70% of these ma- terials since the waste will no longer be separated manually, WasteServ CEO Richard Biloc- ca said. Bilocca accompanied Environ- ment Minister Miriam Dalli and EU funds parliamentary secre- tary Chris Bonett, during a visit of ongoing works. "This is another step forward as part of the government's long-term plan for the years to come, by recycling, converting waste into energy, and treating all the waste produced, in order to drastically reduce the use of landfills," Dalli said. She added that the new facil- ity will enable the creation of a large public open space in Mar- saskala instead of the recycling plant. Bonett said the Magħtab pro- ject will help strengthen the circular economy and continue to give priority to the environ- mental sector. "The investment that is being made is not only in line with national and European policy but also forms part of the initiatives being taken by Was- teServ," he said. The project, which is being partially financed by the EU as part of the Cohesion Fund, will build on the €500 million in- vestment in the Ecohive project that includes the construction of an incinerator and an organic waste processing plant. Maghtab recycling facility works in final stages A new €4 million facility at Magħtab that will sort recyclable waste is nearing completion and enable the complete closure of the Marsaskala Sant'Antnin recycling plant
