Published 15th January 2015, 4:58pm

Mulch made from natural Christmas trees will be available for collection by the public on Saturday 24th January at approximately 8am at the George Town Cricket field. The 'Christmas tree mulch' is part of the Department of Environmental Health (DEH) recycling programme which aims to reduce the amount of waste entering the George Town landfill by recycling the natural Christmas trees into mulch.

Residents are asked to drop off their natural Christmas trees for mulching by January 22nd.

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

The free mulch will be available for pick up at the George Town Cricket Field on Saturday, January 24 at 8 am.

DEH Director Roydell Carter urges 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, used cooking oil, batteries and scrap metals are still being collected by the department as part of its on-going recycling programme.
