A method of charging for the collection of black bag waste in Guernsey is one step closer towards being implemented.

Those in charge of implementing the new waste strategy say the cost of the scheme for each householder will still not breach £7 per household.

Today plans to look introduce a flat charge of £116 in the future for the collection of waste - for each household - were defeated.

Instead Environment & Infrastructure and the States Trading Supervisory Board will be coming back to the States of Guernsey with new plans as to how much black bag waste collections will cost.
