The Department of Environmental Health (DEH) will commence its annual bulk waste removal activity on Wednesday 6 December 2017 and conclude on 20 December 2017.
Residents are asked to place their bulk waste on the kerb side during the dates specified. Collection will commence immediately thereafter.

  •  Cayman Brac East- December 13 only

Bulk waste must be placed on the kerb side where it is easily accessible to DEH collection crews but will not obstruct the roadway. Bulk Items that are put out after scheduled dates will not be collected.

Metals and vegetative waste must be separated from other bulk waste items. Metal waste includes items such as old appliances, metal furniture and metal roofing while vegetative waste includes plant trimmings and tree branches.

Bulk waste refers to large items such as old furniture, household appliances and vegetative waste that are not collected as part of the DEH’s weekly residential pick-up services. Construction and demolition debris are not considered bulk waste and will not be collected during the bulk waste removal activity.
