Guernsey States members to visit UK waste plant

Post by GD on Wed 28 Apr 2010, 2:01 pm

The department that deals with Guernsey's waste is planning to visit a demonstration plant in the UK to get ideas on how to deal with waste.
A new strategy is needed after the States decided in February not to proceed with a mass-burn incinerator.
The Public Services department is now planning a "fact-finding visit" to look at autoclave technologies for dealing with waste.
Officials said they was looking at waste minimisation and separation.
The department has also turned down an application from a local businessman to install a similar demonstration plant in the island.
Deputy Minister Scott Ogier said it would be premature for Rodney Brouard to install a Vantage Waste Processor plant locally and could give it an unfair advantage when various options still have to be considered.
The department plans to hold a series of workshops for States members, starting next week, to provide a clearer direction on the way forward with the island's waste problem. (from BBC)

More fact finding..lol

Why don't they let Brouard set one up at his expense and view that. If it is no good then what has the Island lost. Must be another point I am missing.

Are they really only just starting fact finding missions, after all this time and debates. Did they really make decisions without knowing what they were talking about !

No wonder they chucked out the best solution.

You couldn't make it up.!
Action 1 Mr Brouard cannot demonstrate his solution FOC to the States.
Action 2 We,ll have a jolly to see it demonstrated.
You'd have to laugh except it's costing us once again.

Come on guys I see the word "jolly" bandied round a lot in the previous posts. This is not a jolly, we have been told this is a fact finding mission of great importance to discover the best solution for the Islands waste disposal.
They are out there to rediscover all the options that should have been discovered on the last "jolly" sorry fact finding mission. If we (the States) work this and do some research we will no doubt find that St Lucia has similar problems and have a great system which will need evaluation and visit by one of our expert "jolly" sorry fact finding teams.

Sorry to those who are being serious but I can not take this seriously, one of the two answers the states have to most things, send a fact finding team to evaluate the other answer is get a team of high priced consultants. Why the f*** can't they just do it properly first time like most people do.
