Bailing the dump

The department of environmental health recently installed new recycling equipment at the george town landfill …Meant to help make the sorting process more efficient.
When the materials are shipped off island to be sold… They say they government break even in costs.

Government bought the equipment for 90,000
The equipment complements existing machinery used for collection, storage and processing of recyclables gathered from supermarket depots.
That material is then shipped off island and sold.
Leaders say it’s part of the integrated solid waste management system project,  which  aims  to reduce Grand Cayman’s landfill by 90 percent in a cost-effective way.

“So the prices for all these materials , like a commodity, will vary,  but we will get a rate per bale offered. A broker will look on our behalf, find the best deals, if you will out in the market, so that money will be returned to us and it will be based on the quality, not only of the commodity  itself, but the quality of the bail.” Said Assistant Director of the Department of Environmental Health, Mark Rowland

Government also purchased 50,000 worth of new recycling containers to use at drop-off sites..
