Cesspit Service Collections Suspended due to Storm Ciaran

Cesspit carts


"Limited emergency collections will resume from 2pm today, 2nd November, with a full schedule from tomorrow. Please only contact us for genuine emergencies, we do not want to unnecessarily add to traffic on the roads." Tania Sargent, Guernsey Water Customer Services Manager. 


Guernsey Water Customer Services Manager Tania Sargent said:

"Owing to the severity of the predicted weather conditions, cesspit service collections are suspended between 5pm Wednesday 1st November and at least 2pm Thursday 2nd November.

"This includes emergency collections and there will be no exceptions. It is simply too dangerous for us to send staff out, the risk to their safety is too great.

"Once it is safe for the service to resume, it will and this includes working the weekend. We know seeing a cesspit overflowing will be concerning, but staff safety has to take priority and we will be working to recover and restore the service as the weather conditions improve.

"We will make a further announcement at 2pm Thursday."

All suspended collections will be done as soon as possible.
