Cayman: Bulk Waste Collection moves to Bodden Town

Grand Cayman, May 12, 2023 – The Department of Environmental Health (DEH) collection team is moving into Bodden Town to continue its Bulk Waste Collection Schedule on Monday, May 15, 2023.

Bodden Town residents are urged to prepare, separate and get their items ready for collection. Any bulk waste that is put out after the announced dates will not be collected as there will not be any extension of the schedule.  

The shift of the Bulk Waste Collection Schedule from November to May is to allow greater preparedness for the Hurricane Season by reducing the amount of debris that could be generated by any form of severe weather.

The Department is also reminding George Town residents that Saturday, May 13, 2023, is the last day for the collection of bulk waste in their area and no further extension will be granted.

Household appliances, furniture, and other items too large to be handled by the weekly DEH collection crews should be placed by the roadside for easy access by the DEH collection crews. Metals and vegetation should also be separated from other bulk items.  

In the case of any construction and demolition debris, hazardous material, electronics, and tyres, persons are required to make alternative arrangements to transport these materials to the nearest landfill as these items will not be collected during the bulk waste removal activity.

Solid Waste Management crews are deployed from Monday to Saturday according to the remaining schedule:

In Grand Cayman:

·         George Town                        May 8-13

·         Bodden Town                       May 15-20

·         North Side / East End          May 22-27

In Cayman Brac:

·         East Side  & East Bluff                    May 22-23

·         West Side & West Bluff      May 24-25

·         South Side                           May 26

In Little Cayman:       

·         All locations         May 24

During this clean-up exercise, the collection of residential waste continues as scheduled. However, garbage should be stored in sturdy containers prior to its collection and properly place in their respective enclosures.

The George Town Landfill operates from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on weekdays, until 1:00 p.m. on Saturdays and is closed on Sundays. The landfill drop-off facility at the gate will remain accessible to the public and small vehicles 24 hours per day.
