“Some of the topics included the introduction and use of wheelie bins, implementing solutions regarding vermin and rodent issues, and continuing to encourage residents to put their trash out on the correct days.

“Minister Burch said the discussions were ‘useful and purposeful’, and expressed his thanks and appreciation to the Waste Management team for collecting tons of residential waste each week across the Island, often under difficult circumstances.

“As a reminder to the public, the Ministry released the 2019/2020 Garbage and Recycling Schedule earlier this month. Online copies can be obtained from the Government portal atwww.gov.bm/garbage-and-recycling.

    Has anyone tried calling any of these numbers? Our trash was not picked up yesterday-Pembroke- and I have called all the suggested numbers and not been able to get through to anyone – phone rings and person not on the system – main number at Tynes Bay has elaborate answering machine which just passes you off onto the numbers already tried. Tax dollars at work.
