Green Pak Coop, currently the only recognized and licensed waste recovery scheme in Malta, and numbering over 300 members, recently held its first Annual General Meeting during which the members present approved the newly set up company's statute.

The meeting also elected the first Committee of Management which will hold office for a period of one year.

Mr. Martin Borg , Marketing Manager - M.Demajo (W&S) Ltd. was appointed President of the Committee with Mr. Pierre Fava, Mr. Edward von Brockdorff and Mr. Andrew Cutugno appointed as Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer respectively. The other Committee members are Messrs. Victor Galea Salomone, Norman Aquilina, Mr. Denis Zammit Cutajar, Mr. Gejtu Buttigieg and Ing. Mario Schembri.

Green Pak Coop's initial priorities, as expressed by Martin Borg during the first Committee meeting are to continue leading industry's lobby with Government for the speediest and fairest resolution of the current eco contribution exemption impasse as well as increasing the scheme's current membership levels in order to further reduce membership costs.

The Committee has already held introductory meetings with Parliamentary Secretary Chris Said
