Islanders urged to be more considerate with their waste

22 May 2020

Islanders are being asked to be more considerate when disposing of their waste in public areas after several complaints that rubbish was being left strewn at popular spots, and where bins were already full, was left in places where they caused a nuisance.

With more fine weather and a Bank Holiday approaching, the Minister for Infrastructure is reminding Islanders of their personal responsibilities at a time when a failure to dispose of litter properly puts undue pressure on resources, many of which are currently being allocated to help with the coronavirus pandemic. 

Deputy Kevin Lewis, Minister for Infrastructure said: “Our teams are working hard to deliver their normal service, but with increasing demand due to more take-away packaging and more people enjoying the outdoors, we can all do our part by taking any unwanted rubbish home, or to another bin with more capacity.

“We must keep our beautiful Island safe and clean for everyone to enjoy and this means abiding by the law when it comes to disposing of unwanted rubbish.”
The Household Reuse and Recycling Centre at La Collette is open, please check the website for opening times and coronavirus restrictions.
