Recyclables from Cayman Brac successfully removed

Two 40-foot containers with recyclable items from Cayman Brac have been received at the George Town Landfill as part of the ongoing removal of recyclables from the Sister Islands.

A total of 35,407 lbs. of aluminium cans, plastic (type 1 & 2) containers, lead acid batteries and used tires, as well as 2,475 gallons of oil were removed from the Sister Islands and have been sorted, baled and packed at the George Town Landfill ready to be shipped overseas.

“Members of the Solid Waste teams from the Sister Islands and Grand Cayman have been working assiduously to coordinate efforts and satisfactorily complete this task. We take pride in what we do and we are also aware of the critical role we play to reduce the amount of harmful materials in the environment by making sure these materials are kept away from landfills,“ said DEH Director Richard Simms.

The DEH maintains 14 recycling drop-off locations in Cayman Brac for the placement of aluminium cans. These drop-off locations have been established in the following locations: Kirkconnell’ s Market, Spot Bay Primary School, Brac Reef Resort, West End Park, Rubis-Watering Place, West End Texaco, Coral Isle Restaurant & Bar, Department of Environmental Health, Charles Kirkconnell International Airport, Creek Infant School, Cayman Brac Museum, Billy’s Supermarket, Market Place, and Tortuga Rum Cross Road

Meanwhile, plastic containers (type 1&2) can be dropped-off at The Fish, opposite Alexandra Hotel.
