Who is responsible for paying waste disposal charges?
Introduced from the beginning of 2019 there are 3 separate charges for waste disposal in Guernsey.
As in the past, the Parishes organise waste and recycling kerbside collections and the Parish rates bill contains an element for these collections. This bill is the responsibility of the owner/landlord but he can pass on the cost to his occupier/tenant at his discretion.
Annual waste standing charge (initially £85)
This bill comes from Guernsey Waste (part of the States of Guernsey) and is the responsibility of the owner/landlord but he can pass on the cost to his occupier/tenant at his discretion.
Black bag charge (sticker starting 3 Feb ’19, initially £2.50 for 90 litre or £1.40 for 50 litre)
This is the responsibility of the occupier/tenant, who must put a sticker on each black sack of general waste.
The putting out of waste and recycling on the correct days is the responsibility of the occupier/tenant. For any problems contact Guernsey waste (see your food waste bin, or glass bag) who will assist or point you in the right direction.
