The Purpose of the Waste Management Plan (WMP)

This Plan identifies all solid waste and certain liquid wastes which are specially controlled wastes as waste for which provision for the recovery or disposal of which needs to be made by the Waste Disposal Authority.
This Plan outlines the methods for the management of wastes, including methods for the prevention, reuse, recycling, recovery and disposal of the various types of waste generated on Guernsey. The Plan excludes the management of waste water and agricultural farm slurry which are primarily recovered and disposed of through waste water infrastructure, spreading on agricultural fields or other methods and not at public waste management sites.
This Plan replaces the previous Waste Management Plan approved by the States of Guernsey in August 2014.
