News Release: Hamilton, Bermuda – The Ministry of Public Works is advising that during the week of 27 January 2020, it will conduct its Biannual Septage Disposal Operations

These operations may result in unpleasant odors experienced in the residential areas surrounding the Marsh Folly Composting Facility. Despite the unpleasant odor, the Ministry assures there is no environmental risk to area residents.

For the public’s reference, the operations process is as follows:

  • The Tynes Bay Septage Receiving Facility collects residential and commercial cesspit waste from around the Island. Every six months, the Tynes Bay Septage Receiving Facility is required to remove these waste solids and transport them to Marsh Folly. The Ministry uses the best health and safety and environmental practices while executing these procedures.

 The Ministry thanks the public for their patience, cooperation, and understanding while these necessary works are conducted.
