The Department of Environmental Health reminds residents to follow proper guidelines for garbage disposal to help ensure that garbage waiting for collection will not be hazardous, either to the public or DEH collectors.
Residents are also reminded not to allow garbage bins to fill with rainwater, by keeping bins covered, in order to reduce the risk of mosquito breeding areas.
“Officers have noticed that garbage enclosures are not being kept clean and sanitary,” said DEH director Roydell Carter. “Property owners or agents are responsible for keeping these areas well maintained. Residents should be mindful of their collection day and only put out garbage on their assigned collection day”.
All customers are encouraged to only place their waste by the roadside for collection based on the following schedule:-
Mondays – From Crystal Harbour / Governor’s Harbour to West Bay inclusive of the side roads.
Tuesdays – From Safe Haven / West Bay Rd including Harbour Heights to South Church St, Walkers Rd, Smith Rd, Templeton Pine Lake area, Shedden Road, North Sound Road, Breezy Way, Eastern Ave, Mary’s St, Rock Hole, plus the side roads.
