Longue Hougue Recycling Facility is on the move next week

Share this page

Thursday 20 April 2017

The Longue Hougue Recycling Facility will close for five days from Monday to allow the site to be relocated.

The temporary move is to make way for a new, purpose-built Household Waste Recycling Centre which is planned on the current site.  That is expected to open next year, and will be a major improvement on the existing facility, with proper access roads and hard surfacing throughout. 

The new centre will have facilities for materials currently collected through bring banks, like paper and card, plastic bottles, glass and polystyrene.  Islanders will also be able to drop off items accepted now at Longue Hougue, such as scrap metal, polythene, old electrical items and appliances, paint, bicycles, batteries and rigid plastic. 

It will also incorporate a repair and reuse element, so that unwanted items which are still in good condition can be given a new lease of life. 

A similar recycling and reuse centre was opened in Jersey in January this year. 

To enable construction of the new centre, the current recycling site is moving to another area at Longue Hougue, slightly further north.  It will reopen in this new temporary location on Saturday 29 April, and will accept the same materials as the existing site. 

Access will still be via the traffic light junction at Bulwer Avenue, and the site opening hours will remain the same - 7.30am to 4pm on weekdays and 8am to 5pm on weekends and bank holidays. 

The site will be closed on Liberation Day.
