Refuse Collection | Castel Parish | Guernsey, Channel Islands

Refuse & Recycling

Guernsey’s new waste management system started in September 2018 and includes every household in the island.

The aim is to improve the way the island manages waste, to make it easier to recycle and encourage homes to reduce the amount they produce.

Food and Glass
New collections for food and glass have been introduced.

Food waste is collected weekly on your bin night and glass fortnightly.

Kerbside (Blue and Clear bags)
Recycling bags are free (vouchers available from Castel Douzaine Office) , and the plastic (blue) and the paper (clear)  alternate each week.

General Refuse

With the food waste being collected weekly and the fortnightly recycling collections there should be less ‘other’ rubbish.

This means that the black bag/bin collections are now fortnightly to save cost and encourage waste reduction.

The cost
The new system of charges for the ‘Reduce, Reuse, Recycle,’ regime comes into effect from February  2019 and includes an element of ‘pay as you throw’.

Information is being distributed to every household, stickers will be available from local outlets.


Clear bag

Clean and uncontaminated cardboard, paper, magazines, envelopes and unwanted circulars.

Blue bag
Milk and food cartons, tins and cans, empty aerosol containers, plastic tops and lids, plus aluminium containers and foil.

Plastic bottles, tubs, trays and pots, packaging from food, drink, cosmetics, toiletries, cleaning products.

Food and drink cartons are also accepted if they are clean.

Black bag/non-food waste
Black plastic, thin film, crisp packets, paper or card contaminated with food, nappies, plastic bags and plastic items other than the plastic allowed in the blue bag.

Glass bag
Any clean glass, bottles or jars
