Recycle Your Natural Christmas Trees
Published 7th January 2014, 6:8pm
Residents in Grand Cayman are reminded to drop-off their natural Christmas trees by Friday, 18 January for recycling.
The Department of Environmental Health (DEH) collects the trees and turns them into mulch which is provided free to the public. This benefits the environment by keeping the trees out of the landfill.
Residents can drop off their trees at the following locations:-
- Ed Bush Stadium, West Bay
- George Town Cricket Field
- GT Landfill public drop-off area
- Spots Dock, Savannah Newlands
- Entrance of Frank Sound Rd
- Front of George Dixon Park, East End
The free mulch will be available for pick up at the George Town Cricket Field on Saturday, January 19 at 8 am.
DEH Director Roydell Carter urged residents to bring their own bags and shovels to collect the mulch.
Mr. Carter further encouraged residents to come early as by the end of the morning all of the mulch is usually taken.
The public is also reminded that Aluminium cans, used motor oil and batteries are still being collected by the department as part of its on-going recycling programme.
