Petition Make household recycling of glass, tin, cardboard, plastic and food mandatory.

A call for the States of Jersey to invest in a weekly collection of household recycling in every parish and a fortnightly collection of non-recyclable waste.
Take inspiration from UK councils by distributing small fines to those who do not recycle properly, for the promotion of a green Island.

More details

The investment into better recycling is better for both the Island's health and those who occupy it.
The current recycling system on the Island requires those who live in certain parishes to use recycling points.
This is causing a lack of motivation to recycle within households.
This could be massively improved if each household were supplied with recycling bins and a weekly collection service from homes.
The implementation of fines will also spark motivation within people to recycle more.
