05/08/2020Concerns surrounding the Bagatelle Avenue area

​The Parish have recently received concerns around people feeding the seagulls in Bagatelle Avenue and the surrounding area. The island has a large gull population and it is around this time of year when the birds are building their nests and chicks are hatching - the noise from these birds is often a nuisance in residential areas and feeding them or leaving out easily accessible bags of rubbish only amplifies this.

We would like to remind Parishioners that under the Statutory Nuisances (Jersey) Regulations 2017, it's against the law to feed wild birds or other creatures in a way that means they become a nuisance or harmful to health. Some birds and rodents carry diseases which can be harmful to human health. Islanders who refuse to comply could be fined up to £1000.

We understand that people may believe they are helping or being kind to these birds, however we ask that you please think of the adverse effects before offering them food and especially when leaving refuse out for collection.

03/08/2020Review of St Saviour’s Recycling Service

The St Saviour kerbside recycling scheme resumed on the 15th June and we have had 3 collections to date, however, we are again seeing an extremely high volume of contaminants being put in with the recycling, this has included; used tissues, nappies, food waste – often unopen food waste still in packaging and even pots of paint (we have had open paint pots in the recycling which leaked causing the 1.5 ton of recycling in the truck at the time to be contaminated and rendered useless for recycling) – this is not acceptable. It only takes one single contaminant to be placed in with the recycling to make the entire bag (or even whole bin) null and void, used tissues, cleaning wipes and nappies also put the workforce at high risk of contamination.

 We understand that the odd non-recyclable continues to get through – this is somewhat unavoidable, however, we are asking parishioners to please be aware that contaminants can undo all the hard work that goes into separating/cleaning the items put into the clear bags.

 The Parish Feel this service is valuable to our Parishioners and we are very keen to keep it running, however, due to the above, the service is now under review. The kerbside collections will be continuing as normal however the large euro recycling bins at Rue des Pres have been temporarily removed due to the large number of contaminants.
