Get your Bulk Waste ready for Collection

The Department of Environmental Health (DEH) is reminding residents to get their bulk waste ready as the annual collection of bulk waste begins on Monday, May 1, 2023 in the West Bay District.

“Over the next four weeks, the DEH collection crew will be out in full force collecting hundreds of tons of bulk waste. We need your cooperation to make this exercise a successful one as there will not be any extension and this exercise replace the traditional November schedule. Let’s work together to keep the Cayman Islands clean while preparing for the Hurricane Season”, explained DEH Director Richard Simms.

Bulk Waste Collection will take place from Monday to Saturday according to the following schedule:

In Grand Cayman:

West Bay                         May 1-6

George Town                 May 8-13

Bodden Town                May 15-20

North Side / East End May 22-27

In Cayman Brac:

East Side                          May 22-23

West Side                       May 24-25

South Side                      May 26

In Little Cayman:       

All locations                   May 24

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.

Household appliances, furniture, and other items too large to be handled by the weekly DEH collection crews should be placed by the roadside where it is easily accessible to DEH collection crews.  Metals and vegetation should also be separated from other bulk items. 

Residential garbage should however be stored in sturdy garbage containers prior to its collection. Garbage will be collected in accordance with to DEH weekly residential schedule.

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

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.
