Jersey's main recycling facility will open for the bank holiday on Monday 26 August.

This is the first time that the Household Reuse and Recycling Centre and Household Green Waste Reception at La Collette will be open on a bank holiday.

It comes after Growth, Housing and Environment asked customers what they used the facility for and when they wanted it to be open. It is now open between 9am and 5pm on weekends, as well as some bank holidays.

The States hope the changes will encourage more islanders to recycle.

To increase recycling, recycling has to be easy and we hope that by increasing our weekend opening and opening on some bank holidays, it will be easier for our customers to use our facilities at La Collette.
