No Littering!

Notice Board 13/04/2017

The Department of Environmental (DEH) is reminding members of the public that littering is illegal and offenders can be prosecuted. Litter is unsightly and often seen in Cayman Islands communities. However, it is often most noticeable on beaches and picnic spots after the Easter holiday campers and other visitors have left.

Litter such as fishing lines and plastics left on the beaches can pose a threat to wildlife when washed into the sea. Litter left on land can serve as a harbour for rodents and other pests. Broken bottles and sharp objects are also a danger to others.

Therefore, the DEH is reminding everyone to be mindful of the environment and to leave all areas clean and free of litter.

Everyone is being advised to take along sufficient garbage bags to hold all the waste generated by them and their family. All waste should be properly secured and left in a visible area, or kerb-side for collection by the DEH crew.

Also, no persons should throw garbage from moving vehicles or place garbage on another person’s property; this also is illegal.

Everyone can do their part, and that includes reporting littering to the police. Under the Litter Law, convictions can result in $500 fines, and/or imprisonment.

For more information, please contact DEH at 949-6696.

 

The DEH wishes everyone a safe and happy Easter!
