The annual bulk waste cleanup will take place 20 November to 21 December. The clean-up is carried out on both Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac.
The start of the month-long cleanup exercise coincides with the end of Pirates’ Week and concludes just before Christmas. The schedule for Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac is as follows:
• East End / North Side – 20 to 25 November
• Bodden Town – 27 November to 2 December
• George Town – 4 to 12 December
• West Bay – 13 to 21 December
• Cayman Brac – 27 November to 2 December
Bulk waste includes items such as household appliances, furniture and other items that cannot be handled by DEH crews during the normal bi-weekly collections. Construction and demolition debris is not considered residential bulk waste and is therefore not part of this campaign.
Due to the tight collection schedule, bulk waste placed curbside after the specified dates may not be collected until after the Christmas holidays.
Residents are urged to avoid curbside placement too early or after collection dates. It is important that all bulk waste is collected as scheduled to avoid complaints, unsightly trash and to reduce potential heath and safety issues.
The DEH is, therefore, appealing for the public’s full support with this bulk waste programme, especially given the tight timeline to accomplish this task before Christmas.
