A SMALL fire at Mont Cuet’s green waste processing site on Sunday has prompted a request to move some of the operation to Longue Hougue.

States Works is currently discussing the possibility of the expansion with Environmental Health, which licences waste activities.

Green waste dropped off at Mont Cuet is processed into soil conditioner.

This is achieved by shredding the material and laying it out in long rows to compost and mature over a number of months.

States Works said moving some of the operation to Longue Hougue would with an interim measure help clear a backlog of waste – it is currently running at full capacity.

I believe in a place more sutable for green waste away from the refuse tip for preparation purposes.One example was the contamination of glass entering the green waste heap.With limited space now available now that the tip is approaching road level.

Another way is to limit dumping green waste to say twice weekly to ease pressure until sutable land is made available.

I see garden firms are creating waste by heavy removal of garden ornamental trees and shrubs for income purposes and not for the the plants beauty.
