The trial scheme – which could be extended across the Island – involves householders having separate bins for paper and metal, which are collected on the same day as glass.
A survey carried out by the Transport and Technical Services Department over a two-day period earlier this month found that more than 600 households are voluntarily taking part.
70 per cent put out a box for collection and 57 per cent used both boxes.
Over the two days 8.67 tonnes of paper and 620 kg of metal were collected for recycling.
St John Constable Richard Dupré said: ‘We’re very pleased with the participation rate as it compares well with successful schemes elsewhere.
We would like to thank householders for their good work so far and to emphasise the importance of only putting paper and metals in the recycling boxes.’
