The Department of Environmental Health (DEH) has made some slight changes to its weekly garbage collection schedule.
The adjustments come with a reminder that DEH has put out new, larger recycling bins at major supermarkets and other locations, as a way to reduce the amount of garbage going into Mount Trashmore day after day.
- Mondays – From Crystal Harbour / Governor’s Harbour to West Bay inclusive of the side roads.
- Tuesdays – From Safe Heaven / West Bay Rd including Harbour Heights to South Church St, Walkers Rd, Smith Rd, Templeton Pine Lake area, Shedden Road, North Sound Road, Breezy Way, Eastern Ave, Mary’s St, Rock Hole, plus the side roads.
- Wednesdays – From Windsor Park, South Sound Rd, Crewe Rd, Bobby Thompson Way, Half Way Pond, Randyke Gardens, Prospect Point Rd, the entire Prospect area including Patrick’s Island and the side roads.
- Thursdays – From the junction of Shamrock Rd / Prospect Point Rd. to Will T. Dr. in Bodden Town and this includes Spotts, Homes off the East-West Arterial road plus the Savannah / Newlands area and the side roads.
Fridays – From Will T. Drive eastward inclusive of Northward, Bodden Town, East End, North Side and the side roads.
The most noteworthy change is that there will be no more residential trash collections on Saturdays or Mondays in the eastern districts.
