Recycle Christmas trees

| 08/01/2009

(CNS): Everyone on Grand Cayman who enjoyed having natural Christmas trees over the festivities can now improve their environmental credentials by taking those trees to drop off areas so that they can be recycled. The Department of Environmental Health (DEH) collects the trees andturns them into mulch which is provided free to the public, which benefits the environment by keeping the trees out of the landfill. The date for mulch collection will be announced at a later time.

Residents can drop off their trees at the following locations:-

  • Ed Bush Stadium, West Bay
  • George Town Cricket Field
  • The drop-off area at the entrance of the GT Landfill
  • Spotts Dock, Savannah-Newlands
  • Entrance of Frank Sound Road
  • Front of George Dixon Park, East End

 Residents are urged to drop-off their trees so that there will be enough mulch for everyone. For more information, contact DEH’s solid waste unit at 949-8793 or Tania Johnson at 244-4152.
