Kerbside recycling and outdated parish systems
Every parish should have monthly kerbside recycling collections.
I've just moved to St Clement and I can't believe that the second most densley populated parish does not offer this service.
I believe a small group of parishioners voted AGAINST introducing the scheme at a Parish Assembly not long ago!
This group is NOT representative of the parish population, it is totally undemocratic.
I can't find any information online via the totally outdated parish website about how I can express my interest to introduce the scheme as gov.je suggests I do-
The gov.je website says: "If you live in a parish that doesn't have a kerbside recycling collection, contact your parish hall and let us know that you're interested in recycling."
When searching on the parish website, nothing comes up under community services when I search recycling.
I use the bins availble at Rue Du Pres or Holme Grown but that involves me driving to them which probably outwieghs any good done from recycling a couple of cardboard boxes. Makes me not want to bother at all.
Why the contribution is important
Recycling is a habit we should all practice.
It makes us more aware of the products we are using and the waste that comes from those products.
They aren't just thrown away and forgotten about.
