Cayman: Bulk Waste Collection moves to George Town May 13-18

The Department of Environmental Health (DEH) is reminding residents that the bulk waste collection in West Bay has ended. DEH Solid Waste teams have moved now to the George Town district until Saturday, May 18, 2024, according to the schedule. 

“We continue to thank residents for their cooperation as we move to the George Town area on the second week of this year’s Bulk Waste Collection Schedule. Residents, be reminded that there is no need to place your bulk waste in any other area other than outside your homes. We are coming to you. Let’s keep our islands clean while preparing for the hurricane season”, said Richard Simms. DEH Director. 

The Department is also reminding West Bay residents that Saturday, May 11, 2024, was the last day for the collection in their area and no additional bulk waste must be placed as it will be considered littering or illegal dumping. 

Residents are urged to prepare and separate their items ahead of the week assigned for collection in their respective areas. Any bulk waste that is put out after the announced dates will not be collected. 

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

In Grand Cayman: West Bay COMPLETED May 6 to 11 WEEK 1

  • George Town May 13 to 18 WEEK 2
  • Bodden Town May 20 to 25 WEEK 3

Bulk waste refers to large items such as old furniture, tyres and metal items that are not collected as part of the DEH’s weekly residential pick-up services. 

Metal and vegetative waste must be separated from other bulk waste items. Meanwhile, construction and demolition debris, hazardous material, electronics, and tyres as will not be collected during the bulk waste removal activity. Alternative arrangements must be made to transport these materials to the George Town Landfill or the landfill drop-off facility at the gate which remains accessible to the public and small vehicles 24 hours per day.

The DEH is also reminding residents that following the completion of the Bulk Waste Collection Schedule, arrangements should be made by individuals to transport any additional waste to the landfills and that any illegal dumping and littering should be reported to the DEH or the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS). This unlawful practice can result in a penalty of 6 months of imprisonment and a minimum fine of $500.
