Ministry of Public Works to Conduct Biannual Septage Waste Disposal Operations
The Ministry of Public Works is advising that during the week of 26 October 2020, it will conduct its Biannual Septage Waste Disposal Operations.
These operations may result in unpleasant odors being experienced in the residential areas surrounding the Marsh Folly Composting Facility. Despite this, 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 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 apologises in advance for any unpleasant odors that may arise and thank the public for their patience, cooperation, and understanding while these necessary works are conducted.
