A new facility to reduce the smell of liquid waste disposal in Jersey is being officially opened today (28 July). The Tanker Import Facility (TIF) at Bellozanne is designed to reduce odour and improve the island's overall sewage system.

The TIF has replaced the old tanker discharge unit and receives liquid waste from properties that are not connected to the sewerage system.

The Minister for Infrastructure says work on the project has progressed well despite challenges faced by Covid-19.

The facility is part of a sewage treatment project due to be completed by late 2023.
