The Department of Environmental Health is advising the public to place bulk waste items for collection on kerbsides in time for scheduled pick ups.

According to a statement from the DEH, during the recently concluded first phase of the collections, staff made repeated trips to retrieve bulk waste from previously collected areas. As a result, there was a slight delay in the completion of bulk waste collection from North Side and East End.

The department reported that a total of 43 loads of bulk waste, weighing 154.3 tonnes, were ultimately collected from those districts.

Bulk waste collections in Bodden Town began last week and end on Friday, Nov. 23.

Collections will begin in the George Town District on Saturday, Nov. 24, and in West Bay on Dec. 8. The collections at Cayman Brac East will be on Nov. 28-29; at Cayman Brac West on Dec. 5-6, and at Cayman Brac South on Dec. 12. The tentative dates for collections on Little Cayman are Dec. 17 and 19.
