Islanders have been asked not to recycle cartons in Guernsey until next week.
Public Services said a mechanical fault had meant the carton banks around the island could not be emptied.
The department said it was doing all it could to ensure the full recycling facility was back up and running as soon as possible.
People have been asked to store their cartons until normal service has been resumed.
