Islanders reminded to dispose of fireworks safely

Share this page

Friday 03 November 2023

Ahead of bonfire night, Guernsey Waste is reminding islanders about the safe disposal of fireworks to avoid putting themselves, waste collection workers and staff at waste and recycling facilities at risk of harm.

Waste Minimisation Officer Douglas Button said that it is not only critical to take safety precautions seriously during displays, but it is also very important to dispose of used and unused fireworks safely.

"If they are not disposed of correctly, fireworks pose a serious risk to staff handling waste and can also cause fires in collection vehicles or at the sites they end up at," he said. 

More health and safety advice and full details of public and private firework events can be found at www.gov.gg/fireworks.
