Heading from Nadur square towards the periphery an impressive view awaits. Within minutes you find yourself at Għar Mixta, the natural cave on the cliff’s edge overlooking Ramla Bay. But … what is that grotesque mound showing on the landscape? What a shame, a heap of rubble, building waste and rusting objects. Not only, a layer of cement strewn by a truck that chose to dispose of this unwanted waste in this oblivious spot. What can be the reason for this litter lout to choose such a place to get rid of this waste? Perhaps to start a new landfill opposite to the one which has been closed a couple of years back.

What is this uncontrollable urge to dump unwanted waste in our countryside? Lack of pride in one’s country is obvious. Let us lift the litter curse together to protect our countryside against such irresponsible acts.
