Refuse Collections

Arrangements are made by the Vale Douzaine for the regular collection of refuse throughout the Parish on a weekly basis.

Collection days vary according to area, details of which can be obtained from the Douzaine Room, or from here.

The cost of collection and disposal is charged to parish ratepayers through the refuse rate. How much this is and what influences it is approved at the Parish Meeting, details of which can be found here.

Householders are limited to two bins or two sacks. Wheelie bins are becoming more popular, but only two bin sacks are allowed in each wheelie bin and no more than one wheelie bin can be used.

Information about kerbside recycling will be published here as soon as the details are finalised by the States of Guernsey. In the meantime, a trial period is currently in progress across the island.

Opening times of Islandwide waste and recycling points can be found here.

Kerbside recycling of paper and cardboard (white bags) or plastics and cans (blue bags) alternates weekly and should be put out together with your black sack rubbish or bin.  This week’s (recycling) bag can be found on gov.gg (recycling icon top of page).

Please remember when putting rubbish/recycling out for collection that you need to do it the night before as our contractor picks up very early on the day of collection.
