What a load of rubbish! Gozo beauty spot gets a clean-up

It’s one of the most spectacular views in the Maltese Islands.

And now the view from Nadur across to Comino and Malta looks even more stunning after a major clean-up of the countryside.

A team of enthusiastic volunteers joined Nadur’s mayor Edward Said to help make a difference.

One of the volunteers Nora Evison said: ‘We collected so much rubbish, a lot of fireworks debris, discarded wires and plastic bottles and even one unexploded firework!

‘We fill several black bags and six big recycling bags, not counting old iron bed frames, wood and other materials.

‘We just hope we make a difference in creating awareness and that everyone joins in to keep our Gozo beautiful.’

As well as Nadur, neighbouring Ghajnsielem also caught the clean-up bug.

A 60-strong team of residents led by mayor Kevin Cauchi blitzed four areas of the town in the space of a single morning.

More than 140 rubbish bags were filled with glass bottles, plastic, cans, discarded food packaging and other waste.

Several large items such as old tyres, beer barrels and a disused fridge were also collected during the clean-up in Ghajnsielem.
