Garbage collection fees from all property owners and businesses are now due for payment.
Garbage fees are collected twice yearly, in January and July. However, owners have the option of paying their garbage fees in full in January.
Department of Environmental Health officials are asking the public to pay the fees on time, and where amounts are outstanding, to make arrangements with the DEH for payment plans.
‘Unpaid garbage fees are usually sent to the Cayman Islands government debt collection unit, so that DEH can recover the cost associated with the collection of garbage,’ says DEH Assistant Director Dr. Paulino Rodrigues.
In order to prevent delays with the postal delivery of invoices, the public is urged to contact DEH at 949-6696 to update their mailing addresses. Additionally, persons who may not have received garbage fee invoices in the mail by the end of January are advised to contact DEH immediately.
Property owners and businesses that have already paid their garbage fees in full, or who have paid for the first half of the year, may disregard this notice.
Garbage fees are prescribed in accordance with the Public Health (Garbage and Refuse Disposal) (Amendment) Regulations, 2002.
Should anyone wish to query their garbage fees or otherwise obtain information, contact the DEH at 949-6696.
All fees must be paid in cash, or by cheque.
