In An Emergency


Waste and Recycling Services

On behalf of our Client, Guernsey Waste, States Works has operational responsibility for the Island's new and purpose built Waste Transfer Station and Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC) at Longue Hougue.  

Staff at the Waste Transfer Station sort and process food waste, black bag waste and recyclable glass using specialist plant and equipment.  The food waste is processed into a slurry which is pumped into large tankers for export to an anaerobic digestion facility in the UK.  The general waste is shredded, baled and dispatched for onward processing to an energy from waste plant.  The HWRC is open to the public for the disposal of household items which are then recycled, reused or discarded.  For more information about the HWRC, including acceptable items and opening times, please visit

We also operate Longue Hougue Land Reclamation, Mont Cuet and the Chouet Green Waste sites.  This also includes the environmental monitoring of current waste operations and continued management and aftercare of the Island's closed landfill sites.  This includes the provision and maintenance of landfill gas and leachate abstraction infrastructure.

We are contracted by our Client to operate the Island's bulk refuse scheme, collect glass, tins and polystyrene from the bring bank sites and to service the coastal refuse bins.
