St Martin’s says no to glass kerbside recycling

ST MARTIN’S douzaine has signalled its opposition to glass being included in overnight kerbside recycling.
It was the only parish approached by the Guernsey Press to speak out against the door-to-door collection of glass and suggested that the existing glass recycling banks should continue instead.
Other parishes were still waiting for more details to be released from the Public Services Department and some insisted an ‘all or nothing’ approach had to be taken for the scheme to succeed.
St Martin’s senior constable Graham Smale, pictured, said he did not see why glass recycling banks and kerbside collections could not work in unison.
‘Having glass collections at night could be quite noisy and we have already identified that as a problem,’ he said.
