Tracey, I tend to agree with you. I was involved with the original scheme that used a combination of States Works and unemployed labour/transport; having been out on the 'round' myself a few times I know from first hand experience how labour intensive the collections were - especially out in the western parishes where there might be one dwelling at the end of a 100 yard long track. I have always held the view that whilst Kerbside recycling schemes are fine in theory for city/town environments where dwellings have 'kerbside' access, the geography of this island will never succesfully lend itself to such a scheme. Having seen the latest reaction from the Douzaines and the reluctance of PSD to actually put any figures to the scheme, I am very concerned that it will lead to a total withdrawal of the currently high rates of recycling done by so many (myself included) residents as folks will see the kerbside option as being the 'easy' one. I hope I am proved wrong, but personally, I would prefer to do my 'bit' for the recycling effort and not have to rely on yet another 'facility' that I haven't requested, put in place at my expense.
