Guernsey Recycling Ltd. has extended its hours during the time that the Longue Hougue recycling and scavenging yard is being moved and refurbished.

During the Longue Hougue recycling facility closure from 11 to 25 June 2012, Guernsey Recycling Ltd. just off Bulwer Avenue, will stay open 7 days per week with Saturday and Sunday opening from 8 am to 4 pm.

“We’re open for metal receipts and we have Les Bourgs Hospice skip. People can bring their domestic appliances down, their washing machines, their spin dryers, their fridges and we will pay them for them,” Alan Crowe of Guernsey Recycling Ltd. said.

Ferrous and non-ferrous metal can be delivered to Guernsey Recycling and placed in the skip and bin for donating the proceeds of the value of the metal to Les Bourgs Hospice (click image to expand - ©RLLord)

“We will also pay for metal kettles and toasters but that sort of very small item only receives a few pence so we suggest that they place those items in Les Bourgs Hospice skip.”

“That skip will accumulate all of the small items and at the end of the week the financial value of that skip will be paid over to Les Bourgs Hospice.”

“That is being supervised by Jack Honeybill, Chairman of the Friends of Les Bourgs Hospice,” Mr. Crowe said.

“We will buy aluminium cans if people collect a large enough number – at least a few kilos of cans at each delivery.”

We will also accept Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) items. We will take all WEEE items, and the value of the metal in them can be donated to Les Bourgs Hospice.

“If people continue to contribute metal items to Les Bourgs Hospice donation skip we will be happy to carry on providing the service,” Mr. Crowe said.
