The Gzira Local Council, being a European Local Government body focuses mainly on the betterment of our environment aiming to give present and future generations a better quality of life. We work on varied schemes that collectively form the Reduce, Reuse and Recycle polices.
We are participating in the EWWR awards with the Theme “From Dump to Production” a reuse effort that focused on re-integrating decommissioned data centre equipment – mainly servers from the business community within our locality, equipment deemed to be dumped. This yearlong effort has seen the successful refurbishing, upgrading and finally reintegration of production level servers for the benefit of the community of Gzira. We are aiming in the very near future to offer premium web hosting to the local NGO’s and Voluntary Organisations in Malta completely free of charge with the use of the server that have been salvaged from ending in the landfills.
