“If your garbage has already been placed outdoors, please secure it or take it to the Tynes Bay Facility. The Ministry apologises for any inconvenience and asks for the public’s continued patience as we endeavor to resume service.”

    And here I thought OBA was the bad guy for taking away twice a week collection

  2. Joe Bloggs says:

    I have read the advisory, but I do not see any reason for the suspension.

    Is it because someone in the civil service decided to give garbage collectors a day off?

    • question says:

      The obviously don’t feel the need to explain anything at all to us, the 1 d iots paying for all this.

  3. Bright and Early says:

    WOW can you believe it! Our garbage has been reduced to once per week and also suspended during holidays. Now it’s anytime the department feels it is necessary not to pick up garbage.

    It’s bad enough with our increased food costs especially now eggs are $10 per dozen.

    Well I guess it will stay there until next week. No warning at all.

  5. Paige says:

    What an inconvenience to notify the public the same day as pick-up, do they expect us to pile dirty trash that has been out all day in our cars! & this is why we have a rodent problem in our neighborhoods!

    • Joe Bloggs says:

      No they expect us to take our trash to the incinerator. ” Residents are encouraged to utilise the Tynes Bay public drop off, which is open from 7.00am to 7.00pm.”

    They lost a coworker.

    • Joe Bloggs says:

      And I lost a cousin last week. My work did not close for that!

    • lady Godiva says:

      And what? The whole Island has to pay for this with our once weekly garbage not being picked up?

      • Ringmaster says:

        If that is the reason, then there will be no garbage collections with the aging population, and soon it will spread to all other areas of Government. Is there no one with any common sense?

    • Toodle-oo says:

      People and businesses lose co-workers every day and keep functioning.
      This is ridiculous .. only in Bermuda !
      So will they get paid for not being in today ?
      What happens on the day of the funeral , another paid day off at tax payer’s expense while trash piles up ?

    • Positive mentality says:

      A fantastic coworker at that!
