Keep Guernsey Green

Every year, local households and businesses produce thousands of tonnes of waste. We can minimise the impact of dealing with this by reducing waste, and in particular the elements that require expensive 'end treatment' or disposal.

Links to current waste services are provided below.  The island is also developing new facilities and services that will improve the way we manage waste.  This includes changing the way we collect waste, and how we pay for it.  This will help reduce their waste, and encourage more reuse and recycling.  These plans are due to be fully implemented during 2018, and further details can be found here.

If you require any further information please contact the Recycling Team by calling 01481 231234 or emailing recycle@gov.gg.

There will be changes to our site opening hours over the Christmas period- click through to our Christmas 2017 page for all you need to know...
