Last week of DEH Bulk Waste Collection

North Side and East End residents are advised to get their bulk waste ready for pick-up as the Department of Environmental Health (DEH) starts the last week of collection from Monday, November 28 to Saturday, December 3, 2022.

Residents are also reminded that any bulk waste that is put out after the announced dates will not be collected. Alternative arrangements should be made by individuals to transport these items to the George Town landfill.

DEH Assistant Director Solid Waste, Michael Haworth reiterates that the bulk waste collection programme is a curbside collection project. “We do not provide locations for the public to dump bulk waste off. DEH does need temporary locations to separate and sort materials prior to disposal or recycling. We will always clear all materials from these sites before leaving. If members of the public or businesses choose to dump litter at these locations, we have to go back and clear up again, which impacts our operations and harms our communities”, he explained.

Meanwhile, Bodden Town residents are reminded that Saturday, November 26 is the last day for the collection of bulk waste in their area and no further extension will be granted.

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 it is closed on Sundays. However, the landfill drop-off facility at the gate will remain accessible for the public and small vehicles 24 hours per day.
