I'm sure the legacy Expats are aware of this in Malta, however after my surprise this morning I thought it might be handy to post up for anyone coming or just settling into Malta life.
When you're putting your bins out for the bin men to pick up, please remember that there are certain days when it is only a pick up for recycling. Now my landlord has never mentioned this and there are no signs or notices (this might be different due to your location) advising that on a Tuesday and Friday it is only recycling rubbish that is picked up (based on Msida, check with your local council for your area). Unfortunately I had no knowledge of this and was slapped with a fine of €58 from a non-uniform warden. Just a heads up!
I have challenged the fine but we will see what happens with that!
