Early Closure of GT Landfill on Referendum Day

The Department of Environmental Health (DEH) is advising the public that the George Town Landfill will be closed at 2:00 pm on Wednesday July 18, 2012 to facilitate staff voting on Referendum Day.

Businesses that need to dispose of large amounts of waste are asked to do so before the 2:00 pm closure; the 24 hour drop-off area will remain open to facilitate disposal of small residential loads. The George Town landfill will re-open for business on Thursday July 19th.

Residential garbage collection will be collected as normal in Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac.

The department apologizes for any inconvenience this closure may cause.

For more information, contact DEH main administrative office at 949-6696 or the solid waste unit at 949-8793.
