Bulk Waste Collection heading to North Side/East End & Sister Islands

The Department of Environmental Health (DEH) is urging North Side and East End residents as well as those living in Cayman Brac and Little Cayman to get their bulk waste ready for collection as its solid waste team moves to their communities from Monday, May 27, 2023.

During the last week of this year’s Bulk Waste Collection Schedule, our collection teams will be deployed to the North Side, East End and the sister islands simultaneously. 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 Department is also reminding Bodden Town residents that Saturday, May 25, 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.

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

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 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.
