Questions (Rule 11)
|Question being asked by:||Questions|
|Deputy Gollop to the States' Trading & Supervisory Board||1. Given the probable fact that around three percent of recycling is still done and completed at the bring banks for example at Salerie Corner or Rohais Waitrose, why is the decision to close now the three remaining bring banks, at a time of mounting environmental concern which may also lead to less waste recycling?|
| ||2. Is there a possibility of an unforeseen consequence of closure that more waste will be fly tipped with dumping especially in more highly populated urban areas?|
| ||3. Recent figures released suggest a slight but regrettable decline in waste recycling recovery figures from 72 percent to 69 percent. Can this drop be due to cost factors, closure of bring banks or reduction in environmental promotion marketing?|
|Deputy de Lisle to the Committee for Health & Social Care||1.Incinerators used for clinical and animal waste at the PEH and Longue Hougue are nearing the end of their working lives.|
Replacing the incinerators was among the priority actions listed in the Government Work Plan published last year.
Given their current status what progress has been made to investigate and identify how they will be replaced in due course and with what?
| ||2. The management of health care waste requires increased attention and diligence to avoid adverse outcomes associated with poor practice.|
To what extent is this an issue with current practice with special reference to proper waste segregation, disposal procedures and standards, exposure to infectious agents and toxic substances and the cost of disposal of bottom and fly ash?
| ||3. Two common methods of disposing medical waste include incineration or autoclaving commonly known as steam sterilization.|
Not all jurisdictions allow incineration due to concerns over pollution and damage to air quality.
What measures will be taken to favour the safe and environmentally sound treatment of hazardous health care wastes by autoclaving over medical waste incineration in future?
