Dec 11 - The Mayor Visits The Ecopark

Her Worship the Mayor says she is committed to creating awareness of recycling and supports the Government of Gibraltar and global initiatives to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill.

The Mayor recently visited the Ecopark in order to learn how waste is managed locally. On her visit, Her Worship gained a better understanding of the recycling process and and the role that individuals can play.

A statement continued: “Recycling is not a new concept for Gibraltar. 2008 saw the introduction of two specific waste streams, glass and tin. In 2012, waste streams for paper and plastics were added, with waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) being introduced shortly after. Since then, recycling in Gibraltar has expanded and, in 2015, the Ecopark opened and provided a one- stop facility for the disposal of all recyclable waste.

“Her Worship would like to make the public aware of the benefits of recycling, which includes the conservation of energy. She would also like to see a reduction in pollution, the reduction in the amount of waste products going to landfill and the overall cleanliness of our air, water and land.

“Her Worship encourages households to dispose of their waste appropriately in order to create a better Gibraltar for our community.”
