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

“DEH work to provide these collections alongside normal operations so we ask that bulk waste items are not put out after scheduled dates as this could affect regular collections. We are happy to provide this annual service to the community and appreciate their efforts to comply with the collection measures for the ease and safety of our crew,” said Mr Michael Haworth – Assistant Director, Solid Waste.
