Recycling bins in the island are full to overflowing following the publication of the latest free newspaper.
Keen to avoid a visit from Tertiary Waste and Transportation, islanders have been trying to recycle the printed edition of Bailiwick Express since last week.
“I can’t find a single recycling bin that isn’t already overflowing with this wannabe Globe,” said Tina De Bourgonaire .
“I never asked for this, and I can’t be dealing with the added stress it’s putting on my weekly recycling allowance.
“I used to take the Globe out of pity, and I was very glad when that died a death – I truly thought I’d seen the end of free weekly papers in Guernsey.”
Mrs De Bourgonaire said she was reaching the end of her tether searching for a place to dump her printed media.
“I don’t have time to be dealing with the added stress to be honest – I’m about to open up a new shop in town called HereBay,” she explained.
“It’s like eBay, but it’s actually there and you can go in and see what’s there and then make an offer.”
