Have a Merry Recycling Christmas!

Friday 21 December 2012

PUBLIC Services will be making additional bring bank collections over the holiday period with the exception of Christmas and New Years Day. Extra facilities will also be in place at all eight bring bank 'supersites' to help cope with the anticipated increase in recycling.

The Department is also reminding islanders that they can recycle polystyrene packaging from Christmas gifts at Waitrose in the Rohais, Chouet, and Longue Hougue; and new for 2012, clean, clear polythene such as dry cleaning covers and bubble wrap be recycled at the Longue Hougue Recycling Facility.

Recycling Officer Tina Norman-Ross said that some sites could still fill up quickly, particularly on Boxing Day which is traditionally the peak time. If items are left near the bins, it can slow down the collection process and make the materials unrecyclable if they get wet.

'We are doing what we can by increasing capacity and collection frequency, but if islanders do find any of the bring banks are full we would ask them to either try another site or hold on to their recycling for a day. All the bins are emptied regularly, so we should be able to keep things moving,' said Mrs Norman-Ross.
