Waste bins at the bottom of Le Mont de Gouray (FOI)

Waste bins at the bottom of Le Mont de Gouray (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 25 February 2022.
Prepared internally, no external costs.


I am disgusted at the appearance of a large number of domestic and commercial waste bins at bottom of Le Mont de Gouray, near the public toilets, also known as La Petite Ruelle Munchie.

This is a public eyesore, blocks pedestrian access, smells, attracts rats, seagulls and other vermin. This has been raised with the Parish over the last 12 months but to my knowledge very little has happened.

I believe the road side that the bins are located on belongs to the GoJ.

I would like to see all communications (emails, letter, reports) in relation to this matter with the Department of the Environment. Including any planning applications, environmental health reports, communication with parish or other users.


A review of records and email accounts of Infrastructure, Housing and Environment staff involved in communications regarding the bins has been undertaken and is provided below.
