This will affect the Household Waste & Recycling Centre at Longue Hougue and the Chouet green waste site.

Islanders should also stop using the public recycling bring bank sites, as it does not constitute an essential journey.

The Longue Hougue Land Reclamation site and Mont Cuet will also be closed to commercial operators.

Guernsey Waste staff will be responding to enquiries via phone on 231234 or email to

Household waste and recycling collections are continuing as normal.

However, anyone who has tested positive for Covid-19 or has been displaying symptoms should follow the advice provided by Public Health on disposing of their waste.

Anyone with the virus, or symptoms, should put all waste that has been in contact with the individual, including used tissues, in a plastic rubbish bag and tie it when full. That plastic bag should then be placed in a second bin bag and tied.

Do not dispose of it or put it out for collection until you know that you or the person you are caring for does not have novel coronavirus, or until you have been in self-isolation for 14 days, symptom-free.
