The proposed Suez Environnement / Sita Guernsey waste treatment facility will have a capital cost of £93.5 million.   Suez Environnement values the contract with the States of Guernsey at  £194 million. This includes an annual operating fee of £1.76 million paid to Suez Environnement or Sita Guernsey, and an additional gate fee of £11.44 per tonne of waste delivered to the facility. These costs are indexed linked but as of mid-February 2010 the States of Guernsey has not established with Suez Environnement or Sita Guernsey which index to use to calculate future costs.

These sums do not include interest payments on the capital sum, which will amount to a further £66 million. Total cost in 2012 pounds Sterling is about £260 million.  In  2037 when the contract ends the total cost could amount to over £400 million for a community of just over 60,000 people.
