The Ministry of District Administration, Works, Lands and Agriculture through the Department of Environmental Health’s has commenced its annual bulk waste clean-up campaign.
The DEH bulk waste pick-up schedule for the Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac and Little Cayman are as follows:-
Bodden Town District: 26 November to 1 December.
George Town District: 3 to 8 December.
West Bay District: 10 to 15 December.
Little Cayman: 19 to 23 November.
Cayman Brac: 26 to 30 November.
Bulk waste should be placed on the curbside where they can be accessed by DEH trucks but not block or obstruct traffic. Bulk waste includes items such as household appliances, furniture, and yard waste. These are items not handled by normal DEH residential garbage bi-weekly collection.
All metals and vegetative waste should be separated from the rest of the bulk waste items. Metal items include old appliances, metal furniture, metal roofing; vegetative waste includes all plant trimming and tree branches.
Construction and demolition debris will not be collected as they are not considered bulk waste and therefore is not part of the bulk waste clean-up campaign.
Residents are reminded that items should not be put out after the above dates as DEH crews will not be returning to an area once it has been cleaned.
For further information, in Grand Cayman contact the DEH solid waste dispatch unit at 949-8793; in Cayman Brac and Little Cayman contact DEH Cayman Brac office at 948-2321.
