Garbage Delays

Department of Environmental Health (DEH) officials advise that there will be delays in garbage pickup due to the police investigation currently underway at the George Town landfill.

DEH Director Roydell Carter reported that the closure affects both the main landfill as well as the public and recycling areas.

"Our trucks did pick up garbage in some communities this morning, but do not have drop off access now.

"We fully support the work of the investigators but will resume duties at the earliest opportunity. We also apologise to the public for any inconvenience caused by the delays," Mr. Carter said.
