Guernsey parish defends waste collection refusal

Post by GD on Fri 25 May 2012, 6:00 pm

A Guernsey parish official has defended a decision to refuse to collect rubbish from a St Sampson cul-de-sac.

Rob Broome, Senior Constable for the parish, said waste vehicles could not reach individual houses any more.

Aindre Reece-Sheerin, a resident of Les Tracheries, said despite using a wheelchair he had been advised to place his rubbish at the end of the clos.

Mr Broome said he sympathised with Mr Reece-Sheerin, but there was a problem with cars parking on the street.

He said: "There's far too many cars on the clos... he [the refuse collector] is really concerned he's going to hit someone's car."

'Common sense'

He added: "We need to sort something out... I'm going to get in touch with the people on the clos, and have a meeting with them and see if we can sort something out."

On Mr Reece-Sheerin's concerns, he said: "I can't comment on that, but... we can't expect him to take the rubbish up the road."

Mr Broome added that the Douzaine had no real powers to stop people parking on the road.

He said that it was more a case of "common sense", and that he hoped residents of the clos could remedy the situation themselves.
