News Release: HAMILTON, Bermuda – As Bermuda readies for Hurricane Larry, the City of Hamilton reminds City businesses to prepare early and secure their properties to minimize any damage.

All City restaurants and businesses that currently use the wheelie bins provided by the City must secure their bins inside buildings or storage areas immediately after the last refuse collection before the storm’s closest point of approach.

The public is reminded that bringing household trash from outer parishes and dumping it in the City is illegal. Anyone caught dumping trash may be prosecuted.

The City anticipates that all City services will remain running as normal including City trash collection and City Hall opening hours.

Throughout the week, City crews have been prepping Hamilton for the storm; trimming trees, removing street furniture, banners, flags and planters, and ensuring that all City storm drains are clear.

City businesses and residents are encouraged to check the City’s social media platforms on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for any City updates as Hurricane Larry approaches as well as post-storm.
