The Department of Environmental Health’s main office will be closed from 7-9am on Friday. The George Town landfill will also be closed between 7-9am.

According to the DEH, the late opening times are due to a staff meeting.

Members of the public can dispose of small quantities of garbage at the 24-hour drop-off site located at the entrance of the landfill if necessary, the DEH advised.
