DEH’s Temporary Debris Management Sites

The Department of Environmental Health (DEH) is advising residents of the establishment of Temporary Debris Management Sites to facilitate the clean-up exercise after the passage of Tropical Storm Grace. These sites will be accepting vegetation waste only and the DEH asks that residents help by sorting their debris accordingly.

The Temporary Debris Management Sites are located as following:

1. North Side – at the vacant land adjacent to the Old Man Bay dock

2. Bodden Town – at the Government Emergency Training Site on Anton Bodden Road

3. Prospect – at the National Road Authority (NRA) stockpile at Poindexter Road

4. West Bay – at the vacant Crown land next to Ed Bush Stadium

5. East End – at the East End Civic Centre

The temporary sites will open tomorrow and will operate 7 days a week from 7am to 7pm.

The Georgetown landfill drop off can also be used to dispose of the public’s debris and vegetation and is open 24hrs a day. We ask that residents be patient as traffic at the landfill is currently heavy.

Meanwhile, the debris clearance cluster of the National Emergency Operations Centre, led by the DEH, will continue to clear debris and downed tree limbs as necessary.

The public is also advised that the DEH will ONLY be able to assist in the removal of bulk waste and debris from private properties in the form of a grab truck service at a cost of $100. Please note this service does not included the cutting of trees.

For more information, please contact the DEH’s Solid Waste Management Section at 949-6696.
