Recycling trial gets re-extended

A kerbside recycling trial which was due to end this month has been extended until the end of the year.

It is the second time Guernsey's Public Services Department has decided to continue the scheme whilst considering whether to introduce it island-wide.

The trial involving more than 1,700 households in St Peter Port North and St Peters, began in February 2006.

So far more than 380 tonnes of recyclable waste has been collected directly from people's doorsteps.

The kerbside recycling scheme is seen as a bid to reduce pressure on the island's Mont Cute tip, which is expected to be full by 2013.
