August 19, 2021 | 16 Comments

A Bermudian entrepreneur is offering weekly residential trash collection, with the service available in St. George’s, St. David’s, Smiths, and Hamilton Parish and starting at only $9 a week.

The service is being offered by Secure BDA, a small business owned by Kenten Trott which was founded in 2019 and has been operational since June 2020. It was initially started as a trucking and transportation company, however has evolved to provide enhanced services.

“The services we provide include security assessments, property management, residential security solutions, maintenance, landscaping, general trucking, and most recently waste management,” Mr Trott told Bernews.

“Our mission is to provide professional, punctual and reliable service to our valued customers. We will be the first and only call they have to make for the security, maintenance and protection of one of their most valued assets, their home.

Secure BDA Weekly Trash Collection Bermuda Aug 2021

We asked Mr Trott about the trash collection service and he explained, “In regard to the residential trash collection, it was an idea that I had for a while.

“This is a first for Bermuda as no private business has previously offered weekly residential trash collection for a monthly rate. The Bermuda Government already provides weekly trash collection, so this can be an add on service or the customer can choose to utilize my services exclusively.

“One of the benefits of using Secure BDA is that the trash is collected right from the residence at a designated location every Monday evening [trash should be out by 5:00pm]. It includes up to 3 bags of trash [48 gallon bins] and customers can use the trash cans they already have. A number of customers have indicated that due to the convenience and amount of trash they accumulate, they will be using this service.

“The reason for selecting Monday evenings is because the Bermuda Government collects trash for Eastern Parishes every Friday morning. This would mean customer’s trash accumulates on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and by Monday evening most homes will have at least 2 or 3 bags of waste. Secure BDA will come to collect that waste, and dispose of it responsibly at the designated facility. As Bermuda is such a small place, we want to increase the frequency of trash collection to keep our island home beautiful.

Mr Trott added, “I chose to commence in the eastern parishes in order to get the service started and gauge interest. When I initially posted the advertisement, I thought maybe a few people would respond, however, the response has actually been substantial. A number of customers have signed up for the service, and I get inquiries on a consistent basis. Once I obtain my customer base for the weekly residential trash collection, there are a number of additional services that will be offered.”

    Now we’re talking!! Next we need someone to step up and offer a private BUS SERVICE!!!!

  2. Joe Bloggs says:

    Can that company provide a bus service too?

  3. sandgrownan says:

    Sign me up!

    Can I get a tax reduction, and will this guy run buses too?

  4. wahoo says:

    Can I get tax relief if I sign up?

    • Toodle-oo says:

      hee hee , did our taxes go down when we went from twice a week collection to one ?

      • wahoo says:

        I guess I’ll keep going to Tynes Bay then…even that is run by a private enterprise I think.

  5. question says:

    A private company, doing what the government can’t do.

  6. Jus' Askin' says:

    this is neither smart or wise :-(

    are they going to use the ‘tax payer’ free drop off/dump/incinerator?

    or pay the ‘commercial dump’ fee?

    or do they have a waste management facility (not funded by taxpayers)?

    people are going to pay for an already existing ‘free’ service?

    Bermuda should just REDUCE it’s waste levels ;-)

    • Question says:

      No services are “free”. We pay for them. The government fails to deliver them. That’s why the island is infested with rats.

    • Stop spreading lies says:

      This service cannot dump at the Public area at Tynes Bay because they use a commercial truck – try keeping up with the present day and stop spreading lies and conjecture! Legitimate business which is necessary given this Government’s complete lack of empathy and misuse of our tax dollars! But vote then in again dumb a$$!

      • Jus' Askin' says:

        FYI ~ I have time today :-D

        “This service cannot dump at the Public area at Tynes Bay because they use a commercial truck”
        ~ commercial vehicles park outside the gates and walk in rubbish

        “try keeping up with the present day and stop spreading lies and conjecture!”
        ~ the irony of this statement
        what lie did I spread?

        “Legitimate business which is necessary given this Government’s complete lack of empathy and misuse of our tax dollars!”
        ~ I’ll go with plain pl’ lack of funds. Misuse of our tax dollar can be argued. I do not like footing the airport tab that we were not suppose to pay for ;-) ;-)

        “But vote then in again dumb a$$!” ~ and good ol’ name calling :-(

    • Joe Bloggs says:

      “this is neither smart or wise”

      You would prefer that bags of rubbish be left on the streets for weeks on end waiting to be collected? Do you have any idea what a health risk that poses?

      “Bermuda should just REDUCE it’s waste levels”

      I agree. Instead of 36 MPs we should have 10. One for each parish, except Pembroke, which gets 2.

      • Jus' Askin' says:

        “… bills and trash do not make themselves…”

        the people in Bermuda are the PROBLEM and they pose the health risks

        why can’t we hold ourselves accountable/responsible?

        reduce ~ consumption
        recycle ~ at home
        reuse ~ items for other purposes :-D

  7. Truth is killin’ me… says:

    While I applaud this gentleman for his entrepreneurial spirit why the fork should we have to pay for a service that the Government is failing to do after collecting our taxes…YES THIS GOVERNMENT IS FAILING…MISERABLY!!!

    • Toodle-oo says:

      *why the fork should we have to pay for a service that the Government is failing to do*

      IMO it’s accepted because we’ve become a culture of people used to paying 3 and 4 times over , without ever challenging anyone , to get any (single) thing done right .
      But I do agree with your position completely .
