Recent hot and dry weather and a lack of rainfall is causing strong smells in St Helier.
Smells have been caused by seaweed getting stuck under rocks
Jersey's Public Services Department says it is doing all it can to minimise them.
But the department is asking people to be patient.
Green waste at the La Collette site is decomposing more quickly.
Bad smells have also been caused by seaweed becoming trapped under rocks near the Waterfront and under the sea wall.
Chief Officer John Richardson said a large storm was needed to clear sewers in St Helier, which were also smelly.
