Justification on figures in relation to waste services (FOI)

Justification on figures in relation to waste services (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by States of Jersey and published on 19 January 2016.
Prepared internally, no external costs.


The Medium Term Finance Plan stated that it was intended to bring in “user pays charges for services like liquid and solid waste, as is done elsewhere, raising up to £10 million to pay for services, improve environmental outcomes and manage demand.”

According to recent press coverage the TTS estimate was quoted in that the proposed waste charge would cost around £223 per household per year.


My FoI asks for justification of the sum of £10Million.


I would also ask for justification of the sum of £223 per household per year.



We can confirm that the public authority holds this information.

However, this information is exempt under Article 35 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 and cannot be released. See explanation details below.


FOI exemption applied:

Article 35 Formulation and development of policies

Information is qualified exempt information if it relates to the formulation or development of any proposed policy by a public authority.

Justification for exemption

This work is ongoing and no specific details are as yet available.

Having considered the public interest, the public authority's decision is to withhold the information.


The figure of £223 is not one that has been provided by the department and it therefore holds no information on this.
