“Garbage that is not collected on Saturday, 31 December, will be collected on Monday, 2 January 2023.

“If garbage is not collected on Saturday, residents are encouraged to secure their waste and place it outside again on Monday morning [2 January].

“Residents are also encouraged to utilise the Tynes Bay Public Drop Off, which will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, 31 December, and Sunday, 1 January.

    Why is it that the trucks break down just before a public Holiday, and a long weekend at that? Clearly the staff know how to maximize their benefits so they get paid at multiples of basic. Where is the outcry from the Minister or is he complicit in the situation?

    Oh My!!! This means there will be a steady flow of household garbage being left in our National Parks and bus stop bins!!! Woe is we !!!

    Question: Why are these vehicles not maintained on a regular basis ???

      Because we have inefficient bosses in an inefficient Government! I know first hand. I have witnessed utter stupidness and complacency for over two decades. That is coming from the inside, out. Over time, the month to month operations have Deteriorated. Lack of operating trucks on the road, cheap supplies to do the work, therefore using many more supplies when available. Budgeting constraints and inefficiency.
      My fellow Bermudians should all be working ‘For the Good of Bermuda’ but, from the top down, a lot is left to be desired.

    Would a private contractor allow this to happen?
