Sending ash back part of Jersey incinerator plan

ASH from Jersey’s incinerator could be shipped back for use in Guernsey’s construction industry if local waste is exported to the sister isle.
The recommendation was made as part of the Jersey Environment Scrutiny Panel’s ash disposal report, part of which considered the possible importation of Guernsey waste.
Jersey remains on a shortlist of potential export jurisdictions currently being weighed up by Public Services.
In the Jersey paper it recommended that the current policy of permanently burying bottom ash – IBA – in sealed cells at La Collette should stop.
Instead, it said all IBA produced in future should be processed into incinerator bottom ash aggregate – IBAA – of a consistent quality ‘suitable for use by the local construction industry’.
