We have been working with the Guernsey waste team for over ten years, but more closely in the last two years helping them to put together a business case for making major changes to their kerbside collection systems. The last two pieces of compositional analysis work have involved closer measurement of food waste in the residual waste bins, pre and post roll out of their separate food waste collection scheme.
The post waste composition analysis results showed that, 92% of households set out separated food for collection and the scheme had a capture rate of 81%. Their bio diversion rate increased to 43% (all kerbside collected streams) and between 2018 and 2019 the weight of kerbside collected residual waste was halved. They are now using route optimisation software to rationalise their collections.
Sarah Robinson, Operations Manager at Guernsey Waste said –
“Integrated Skills has undertaken and successfully completed Waste Composition Analysis projects for the States of Guernsey since 2008, including 5 separate projects between June 2018 and May 2019. The outputs of the WCA work have made a significant contribution towards the development and successful implementation of Guernsey’s waste strategy”.
