Tires at the landfill in Grand Cayman.

Published 2nd June 2014, 4:22pm

The Government of the Cayman Islands through the Department of Environmental Health (DEH) is inviting bidders for the purchase (including at a nominal price), processing (on-site or off-site at an approved local site/facility) and removal of all the “Used Tyres” accumulated at the Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman Landfill Sites.

The removal involves “Used Tyres” existing as whole, unprocessed or semi-processed tyres (i.e., tyres that have not been shredded, or tyres that have the rubber separated from the rim, or tyres with the rubber and the rim attached).  Some of these tyres may require special technical capabilities to cut, transport and remove from the sites. The majority of the used tyres are located at the Grand Cayman Landfill.

All interested Tenderers must meet the following eligibility criteria in order to be considered and evaluated.

  • Companies or individual Tenderers must comply with all applicable local laws including business registrations, health, pensions and any other regulations.
  • Tenderers are reminded that the bids should be inclusive of all costs necessary to conduct the project.
  • Proof of finances and technical ability to fulfill the contractual obligations must be demonstrated.

Interested Tenderers can collect the Tender package which contains instructions on the submission of tender from the Administrative office of the Department of Environmental Health which is located at the Cayman Islands Environmental Center, 580 North Sound Road.  Tender documents are available from the 28th May, 2014 between the hours of 9:00 A.M. and 4:00 P.M. Monday through Friday. These documents are also available on the Government website:

All tenders should be returned before the closing time and date of 12:00 noon on the 2nd July, 2014.
