Holiday Garbage/Recycling Collection Schedule

December 16, 2015

The Department of Waste Management, Ministry of Public Works, advised the public of the garbage and recycling collection days over the Christmas and Boxing Day holidays.

A spokesperson said, “During the week of Christmas, west end garbage will be collected on Monday 21st and Thursday 24th December.  East end  garbage will be collected on Tuesday 22nd and Wednesday 23rd December. Recycling will be collected on Wednesday 23rd in the east, and Thursday 24th in the west.

“The week of New Year’s, west end garbage will be collected on Thursday 31st December, 2015 and Saturday January 2nd, 2016.  East end  garbage will be collected on Tuesday 29th and Wednesday 30th December, 2015.

The public is advised that these dates differ from those listed in the 2015/2016 Garbage and Recycle Calendar found on pages 302 and 303 in the blue pages of the BTC 2015/2016 Bermuda Telephone Directory, which are incorrect. A revised version of the 2016 Garbage and Recycling Schedule will be mailed to each household and PO box island-wide in the New Year to reflect these changes.

“The Tynes Bay public drop-off will be closed on Christmas Day.”

    Why have a schedule when you can’t stick to it. East end collection was yesterday, my trash is still sitting there today.
    “East end garbage will be collected on Tuesday 22nd and Wednesday 23rd December” so how much trash will be generated overnight that they have to collect trash two days in a row? Seems that its just an excuse to take your time on Tuesday and collect the rest the next day.

    And don’t even start with Recycle … God forbid anyone from Quarry’s Recycle answer phones … no matter, early mornings, mid-morning, after lunch, nada, nothing, crickets … don’t bother trying after 3 pm either (short while before knock-off), shameful public cannot get answers to their questions (only v/mail for someone who refuses to return calls and paid well for doing nothing).

    This is one of the stupidest schedules around. Why not have it every other day. smiths is correct, How much trash do you think I can generate in one day. Who sits down and thinks of this craziness? You need to give your paycheck back.
