Speaker: Richard Evans, Deputy Managing Director, States of Guernsey Trading Assets. Subject: The Making of Guernsey Waste!


Waste operations in Guernsey have undergone huge transformational change over the past 24 months, in an exercise which has seen:

  1. Cessation of using the Mont Cuet hole/mountain for dumping general waste.
  2. The building of major new infrastructure, including the Longue Houge Waste Transfer Station on recently-reclaimed land.
  3. New kerbside and commercial waste collections.
  4. The introduction of new charging practices to encourage recycling behaviour.
  5. All islanders, households and businesses affected.
  6. A new business - Guernsey Waste - created by the States Trading Supervisory Board.
  7. Contracts established with further shipping and overseas processing contractors.
  8. Household recycling targets boosted close to leading levels in the UK and Europe.
  9. A National (UK) Waste Industry Award received within the Guernsey team.

Richard Evans, the Senior Responsible Officer for the development project and an expert on getting wasted, will explain the highlights, accompanied by Sarah Robinson, General Manager of Guernsey Waste.
