Recycling rates growing in island
Recycling rates are growing in Guernsey with a rise in the amount of household rubbish not being taken to landfill.

In the first quarter of this year, 22% of waste from private homes was diverted for recycling.

There is growing concern in the island about the life span of Mont Cuet tip, which could be full by spring 2014.

The States figures show a 13% decline in the amount of waste going to the tip in the first quarter of this year, compared to the same period in 2005.

The Environment Department believes the new cardboard recycling facilities are a major factor in the decrease.
