Kerbside recycling of paper and cardboard (white bags) or plastics and cans (blue bags) alternates weekly. This week’s (recycling) bag can be found on gov.gg (recycling icon top of page).
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Guernsey's waste strategy, which underpins the Vale Douzaine’s refuse collection programme, encourages islanders to reduce waste and provides services and facilities that make it easier to reuse and recycle.
Many unwanted household items that are still in good condition can be given a new lease of life by someone else. They can be donated to charity shops, or dropped off at the Longue Hougue recycling facility for other islanders to take away.
Reusing these items stops them ending up as waste and the amount that we all recycle has a significant effect on the life of the tip at Mont Cuet.
The Vale Douzaine is keen to encourage recycling where possible. For full details of all of the island’s recycling initiatives, visit the States of Guernsey website by clicking here.
Recycling Sites in the Parish
The main ones in the Vale are:
- Chouet Headland
- Douzaine room car park (Salvation Army - clothing, books etc)
- La Banque Imbert, Bordeaux (glass and cans)
A number of recycling bins have been placed in coastal car parks for everyday litter.
