Pay up for garbage collection

| 08/05/2009

(CNS): Property and business owners with outstanding garbage fees should do so by Friday, 29 May, the Department of Environmental Health had said. Payments may be made either by cash or cheque on all three islands, but credit and debit card payments are also acceptable on Grand Cayman. “We want to make it as convenient as possible for customers to pay,” said DEH Director Roydell Carter. “Payment plans are therefore possible for customers who may not be able to pay all their fees at once.”

“Additionally, garbage fees for the second half of the year will be due by Friday, 31 July, and we don’t want our customers to have payments in arrears,” he continued.

Since garbage fee invoices were initially mailed out in January, customers who have not received any bills may need to update their mailing address. However, Carter explained that customers are still obligated to pay their fees even if they do not receive an invoice. “It is a statutory obligation for the payment of garbage fees. In all cases customers continue to receive or have access to the service whether or not their fees have been paid.”

Garbage fees are used to cover the cost of providing refuse removal services for all residents and businesses. It is prescribed in accordance with the Public Health (Garbage and Refuse Disposal) (Amendment) Regulations, 2002. Anyone wishing to query garbage fees, change their billing address, or request an invoice, should call the DEH on 949-6696.

    It is a bit of a cheek to request payment for a ‘service’ that is intermittant, unpredictable and often non-existent!
