1.        Background
In recent years our capital city has experienced an unprecedented resurgence and a social, cultural and economic regeneration which has been manifested itself in, amongst others, the opening of a plethora of shops, businesses and catering establishments as a result of which Valletta has once again become a vibrant and lively hub of activity which attracts tourists, investors and peoples from all over the world. Today it is safe to say that Valletta speaks a language and moves to a rhythm which is as baroque as its grandiose architecture.
Inevitably, this economic regeneration has brought with it new challenges which the Government is actively seeking to address with vigour and determination.
One of these challenges is the increased production of both domestic and especially commercial waste and the purpose of this proposed legislation is to regulate in the best manner possible the collection of waste in Valletta in order to ensure that the daily needs of its residents as well as its commercial community will be adequately served whilst at the same time avoiding at all times the accumulation of any unsightly waste which may detract from the splendour of our capital city.
This legislative proposal is being made in view of Valletta’s specific needs and circumstances, a vibrant capital city where operations of a different nature take place at various hours of the day and takes into consideration the needs of the different sectors of a population which lives and works in Valletta - its residents, its busineses and offices which operate mostly during the day and the high concentration of catering establishments which operate well beyond office hours, in the evenings and during weekends when most offices are closed.
