Guernsey's kerbside recycling scheme is being extended to the end of the year.
The trial was launched in 2006 by the environment department and involves more than 1,700 households in St Peter Port and St Peters.
The public services department has taken on responsibility for the waste strategy and is launching a consultation scheme.
Minister Bill Bell said he would like to know islanders' opinions and how cost-effective the scheme has been.
In a letter to households, Mr Bell said the department wanted to maximise the trial's benefits.
"We have agreed to extend the kerbside recycling trial until the end of this year, during which time we want to review it and that includes getting valuable feedback from householders."
Items such as newspapers, cardboard, glass and tins are collected direct from the doorstep.
It is seen as a bid to reduce pressure on the island's Mont Cute tip, which is expected to be full by 2013.
