Kerbside recycling recommences

Kerbside recycling recommences

The Parish’s recycling collection and processing operation was suspended at the end of March as part of the response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Constable is pleased to announce that St Helier’s kerbside recycling service recommences on Monday 1st June. Parishioners are asked to leave their recycling for collection on the normal scheduled date. Anyone unsure of the collection date for their home can find all the relevant information online at or by telephoning 811705.

Parishioners are reminded of the importance of taking care when placing items in their recycling bags. The Parish’s recycling operation works to the highest standards and all recyclables are sorted and processed before being transported to a trusted partner in France, where the materials can be tracked into the recycling process, providing evidence and assurance of their end use. It is important for the safety of our staff and the integrity of our recycling process that recycling bags do not contain tissues or nappies. Other items that cannot be recycled include black plastics, yoghurt pots, tetra packs, milk cartons, cling film food trays, carrier bags and any items containing food remnants.

Full details of what can and cannot be recycled, can be found online at or by telephoning 811705.

“I’d like to thank parishioners for their patience and am very pleased to announce the recommencement of our service from the beginning of next week." Constable of St Helier, Simon Crowcroft
