Waste strategy update is welcomed but the douzaines want details

DOUZAINES appreciated a government update on the waste strategy but will wait anxiously for more detail about its costs, officials have said.
Public Services warned that a kerbside recycling scheme, scheduled to be rolled out island-wide by 2015, could see the average household waste collection bill nearly double from £100 to £190 at its presentation to parishes this week.
St Martin’s junior constable Gerry Tattersall, pictured, whose parish will join St Peter Port and St Sampson’s in seeing an initial trial of the scheme next year, said his douzaine was split on kerbside recycling.
St Peter Port constable Dennis Le Moignan said the meeting had been positive.
Torteval vice-dean Andrew Sauvarin said it was difficult to have a view on kerbside recycling without knowing the detail.
