MARIGOT:—- The Collectivité of St. Martin informs restaurant owners, especially those working in Grand Case, that the garbage collection is always done at night and that it is very imperative to follow this rule.
Indeed, the Collectivité garbage bins are strictly reserved for domestic waste and restaurant owners must dispose their waste in the collective garbage bins after 6 p.m. Before 6 p.m. restaurants are required to keep their garbage in their premises, so that the waste is not exposed in the sun and in plain sight of the public. During the “Mardis de Grand Case” event, restaurant owners can put their waste in the Collectivité containers around 10 p.m as the garbage truck empties them after midnight.
The Collectivité also reminds the restaurants that it is strictly forbidden to throw used cooking oils in garbage containers. Cooking oils must always be collected in a regulatory grease trap and brought to the garbage center in Grandes Cayes, in order to be recycled. People who do not comply with regulations will be fined by Environment Police or by the Territorial Police.
The Collectivité of St. Martin counts on the cooperation of all to insure these customary rules are followed, and thanks the restaurant owners for their contribution.
