Cayman: DEH Bulk Waste Removal Campaign begins Nov 16 – Dec 22

Pin It

The Department of Environmental Health (DEH) will commence its annual bulk waste removal activity on Monday, 16 November 2020 and conclude on Monday, 21 December 2020. 

UPDATED:

DEH wishes to remind the community that the following items are not considered bulk waste and will not be collected as part of this campaign:

Derelict Vehicles – Arrangements for collection of these must be made separately and collected according to the law. The cost to have a derelict vehicle removed is CI$75 and DEH can be contacted separately to make arrangement for collection.

Construction and Demolition Debris – DEH does not have equipment to pick up and load these materials from the roadside therefore these will not be collected during the bulk waste removal activity.

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

In order that DEH collects bulk waste in the most efficient manner residents must place bulk waste on the kerbside during the dates specified.

Not all waste can be put in the same truck, therefore DEH requests that metals and vegetative waste are separated before collections. Metal waste includes items such as old appliances, metal furniture and metal roofing while vegetative waste includes plant trimmings and tree branches.

Residents are asked to place their bulk waste on the kerbside during the dates specified. Collection will commence immediately thereafter.

Grand Cayman:

  • East End/ Northside………………………………….         November 16 – 21
  • Bodden Town …………………………………………        November 23 – December 5

Bulk waste must be placed on the kerbside where it is easily accessible to DEH collection crews but will not obstruct the roadway. Bulk items that are put out after scheduled dates will not be collected. 

Metals and vegetative waste must be separated from other bulk waste items. Metal waste includes items such as old appliances, metal furniture and metal roofing while vegetative waste includes plant trimmings and tree branches.
