Recycling Centres

Mini-Recycling Sites (e.g bottle banks)

Bring (bottle) banks are due to be removed across the Island due to the success of kerbside recycling, beginning 23 July 2018.

Since the introduction of the household green recycling bins – which collect bottles, glass and plastics - and improvements in waste and recycling treatment, many of the banks have become vastly underused, with some banks not reaching 10 per cent of their capacity when emptied.

Feedback collected as part of the annual waste and recycling residents survey has also shown most people no longer use them.

Unfortunately, many of the sites are targeted by fly tippers and some commercial companies also illegally dispose of their business waste in the banks.

Twenty-nine bottle banks will be removed in the first phase, starting 23 July, with signs placed on those due to be taken away.

The decision does not affect privately maintained bring banks such as those run by charities.

Residents are also reminded that shoes and textiles can also be placed at the kerbside on recycling week, as long as they are stored in a separate bag (NOT black).

The first set of banks to be removed and their dates are below*:
