Kerbside recycling is just not a suitable option for Guernsey. Apart from the cost, there is the chance that the service will be put out to tender to UK companies. This could put current LOCAL contractors out of business. We have enough problems with traffic congestion as it is which is why all collections are currently carried out at night. The trial carried out in St Peter Port some time ago resulted in tailbacks. I personally think that the current system should stay as it is. People who recycle already will continue to do so and for those that can't manage to do it themselves there are local businesses who will collect for a small monthly charge, this would be a lot cheaper for the householder in the long run than the proposed increase in rates.
