Last week of Island Wide Vegetation Collection Schedule

Published 20th September 2021, 10:50am

Grand Cayman, September 20, 2021 - The Department of Environmental Health (DEH) team has now moved to collect post storm vegetation waste at the North Side & East End Districts until September 25, 2021. Residents are reminded to get their vegetative debris ready as there will not be any extension.

The DEH is also advising residents of its plans to go back to the areas where there is post storm vegetation waste still to be collected. DEH Director, Richard Simms is given the assurance that the collection will be completed soon as his team has already map out the areas. “We already know the places we need to visit and we will do so in an organized manner. However, we are encouraging residents to contact us and book for the collection of their vegetative debris ONLY. This is the last week of our Island Wide Vegetation Collection Schedule. Nevertheless, our teams continue to work to provide the community the best service,” said Mr. Simms.

Residents are asked to ONLY place vegetation debris on the curbside where it is easily accessible to the collection crews. Do not obstruct the roadway or storm drains or place household trash. Trim vegetation to lengths of 3 feet to enable an efficient collection. Alternative arrangements should be made to transport any other type of debris to the George Town landfill drop off.

Additional information is available from the DEH at 949-6696. Individuals may also send an email to dehcustomerservice@gov.ky, visit the DEH’s website at www.deh.gov.ky or message its Facebook page at www.facebook.com/DEHCaymanIslands.
