The new purpose built Household Waste & Recycling Centre (HWRC) at Longue Hougue is where you can take everyday household items for reuse, recycling or disposal. You can drop off most items there, without charge.

Charges apply to materials that are not recyclable or reusable, and will be payable on the gate (cash or card payment only). For a list of charges please go to the downloads on this page.

When you arrive you will be met by one of our friendly site staff. They will have a look at what you are bringing and let you know where to drop them off. If you have a lot of items, or something heavy to drop off, and would like a helping hand, let the site staff know.

Please remember we do not accept any industrial or trade waste and all electrical items, large or small, must be declared to site staff to ensure they are dealt with safely.

  • GO Reuse Centre

    • Guernsey Waste is working in partnership with local charity GO to give unwanted items a new lease of life, so they don't go to waste. The scheme also provides valuable training and employment opportunities for local people, in preparing items for reuse or "upcycling". Items generally have to be in good, sellable condition or suitable for repair. Please ask a member of the site staff whether your items could be reused, and they can direct you to the storage area.
  • Comments, Compliments and Complaints

    • We value feedback from our customers and are keen to know how we can improve our services.  If you would like to provide feedback to us, both positive and constructive, then please contact us via the contact us button on this page.
       
    • The States of Guernsey will not tolerate any intimidation or abuse on site, be that to site staff or site users. Users of the facility that do not abide by this shall be issued with a verbal or written warning, which could result in persistent offenders being banned.
       
    • Equally the States of Guernsey will not tolerate such behaviour from its staff. Should you have any concerns in this respect please ask to speak to the Site Supervisor. If this is not possible, a formal complaint should be made in writing to:
