The Unique Waste Management Requirements of Small Island Regions

Written by  Clyde Falzon

Ultimately, common understanding must be fostered because a sustainable waste management system is based on the sound participation of all members of the society i.e. people generating the waste (everyone) including waste operators, waste administrators and policy makers.

 

Clyde Falzon

Clyde-Falzon-article-finalClyde Falzon is a young engineer working in the Maltese waste management sector. Being born and brought up on the small Mediterranean island of Malta, Clyde has firsthand experience of what challenges islands face in order to manage their waste sustainably. In fact it is this challenge that motivates him to continue exploring this field.


During his mechanical engineering course Clyde conducted a feasibility study on PET bottle recycling in the Maltese islands. Following that Clyde opted for Masters Course in Sustainable Environmental Resource Management and Integrated Science and Technology. The research project in this case was focused on the effects of the Maltese waste management sector on climate change. Clyde is currently working with WasteServ Malta Ltd. on the management of hazardous waste. You can contact Clyde Falzon by e-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots.
