The Department of Environmental Health is inviting the public to deposit discarded natural Christmas trees at bins at three locations throughout Grand Cayman.

The DEH has placed bins at the Cricket Grounds, Spotts Dock and the George Town landfill’s 24-hour drop-off site.

The trees will be mulched at the landfill and will then be taken to the Cricket Grounds for public collection on Saturday, 25 Jan. starting at 8am.

Members of the public can take the mulch on a first-come, first-served basis.
