Waste strategy progress report raises concerns
Friday 8th March 2013, 1:00PM GMT.
A PROGRESS update on Public Services’ waste strategy will not pacify douzaine concern over its cost implications, deputies have warned.
Parish officials will have their chance to quiz the department at a meeting on 14 March on its plans to implement initiatives such as a kerbside recycling scheme.
But politicians who have already received the briefing have said, while it was helpful and welcomed, douzaines will be no nearer to the long-awaited answers over what effect it could have on parish rates and contracts.
Estimated costs provided by the department when it was approved in early 2012 showed the strategy, which includes exporting waste for incineration off-island and a 70% recycling target by 2025, would see the average household waste bill increase by £80 a year.
