Tuesday Trash Collection Likely To Be Delayed

July 26, 2021 | 6 Comments

There are “ongoing delays in garbage collection due to industrial action,” the Government has advised, adding that “as a result, Tuesday collection will likely be delayed.”

A Government spokesperson said, “The Ministry of Public Works advises the public of ongoing delays in garbage collection due to industrial action by Collections Staff.

“The Bermuda Industrial Union and the Ministry’s management team continue to discuss the matter, which is now partially resolved. Unfortunately, however, collections across the island have been impacted.

“As a result, Tuesday collection will likely be delayed. Residents whose normal garbage collection day is Wednesday are asked to hold on to their garbage and put it out for collection on Saturday.

“The Ministry of Public Works notes that work crews will collect the trash backlog over the next few days.

“The Ministry apologises to the public for the inconvenience caused and encourages using the Tynes Bay Public Drop off. Operating hours are 7.00 am to 7.00 pm daily, and 9:00 am until 12:00 pm on public holidays.

“The Ministry will advise when the regular trash collection schedule resumes.”

    The usual BS. Put off the collection until the weekend at time and a half minimum, and ask people to do W & E’s job and take the trash to Tynes Bay. Not going to happen. I pay taxes to have the garbage collected, not to do their job for free while they get paid time and a half to collect the remainder.

    Remember, you voted for this failure. Repeated failure.

    If the line is too long for you at Tynes Bay consider taking your trash to CF’s house or the homes of the people in charge of trash collection.

    Dropping it outside the Premier’s residence or the home of the Minister responsible for W&E might be two more options.

    The PLP Government created this situation. Because of the amendments to the Labour Relations Act, every person who works in a union shop must now pay union dues. Only half can be given to charity if you don’t want to be a union member.

    The PLP Government has given the unions a pay rise and now that the coffers are filling up the union is fighting back. The BIU will never have enough until it owns every business in Bermuda.

    Oh, and with Cup Match weekend coming up, will be double time and a half to collect trash on Thursday and Friday and will Jason Hayward make sure that happens?

    The two basic things that taxes are for are the trash collection and the roads matinence. If these things aren’t getting done than where is the money?
