THE JEP and Bailiwick Express are both exploring ‘Our Throwaway Society’ and the future of Jersey’s waste.
Before the 1970s, all of the Island’s waste was thrown into landfill.
The States then built the incinerator at Bellozanne and chose to reclaim land at La Collette to dump waste, such as building rubble.
Reclamation continued through the 1980s and 1990s, filling up ‘West of Albert’ and ‘La Collette 2’.
Now these sites are full, the government is seeking to pile up waste at La Collette while it comes up with a long-term plan.
That plan may well propose more reclamation – as Jersey’s population expands, is the answer to build more Jersey?
