DEH Establishes Temporary Debris Management Sites
The Department of Environmental Health (DEH) is advising residents of the establishment of four 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 follows:
1. North Side – at the vacant lot 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 Roads Authority (NRA) stockpile at Poindexter Road
4. West Bay – at the vacant Crown Land lot next to the Ed Bush Stadium
The temporary sites will open on Friday, 20 August and will operate seven days a week from 7am to 7pm.
The George Town landfill drop-off can also be used to dispose of storm debris and vegetation and is open 24 hours a day.
The DEH asks 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 across the Islands 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 Solid Waste Management Section at 949-6696.
