Waste collection: New public contracts for the cleanliness of the territory!


As part of its environmental policy, the Collectivity of Saint-Martin has completely reorganized the cleaning of the territory.

Waste collection markets have been renewed and collection hours reinforced to improve cleanliness.

From now on, the collection of household waste, bulky items and green waste, begins from 23 p.m. throughout the country, with collection 7 days a week for household and bulky waste and 7 days a week for green waste.


Waste collection: reminder of the regulations in force

Deposits of household garbage, bulky items and green waste on public roads generate odor and visual nuisances for residents and tourists who visit our destination.

To avoid these attacks on the environment, the Collectivité of Saint-Martin has set up a sustained waste collection system:

- 7 days a week for household waste

- 7 days a week for bulky items

- 6 days a week for green waste (except Sunday).

Collection now takes place from 23 p.m., waste must be deposited on public roads between 18 p.m. and 23 p.m. in the bins provided for this purpose.

These will be renewed from June 2021.

The Galisbay-Bienvenue recycling center is open to individuals from Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 18 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 14 p.m. (closed on public holidays).

The Grandes Cayes ecosite in Cul de Sac receives waste from businesses and individuals. It is open Monday to Friday from 6 a.m. to 16 p.m. and Saturday from 6 a.m. to 12 p.m .: https://www.verdesxm.com/

The Collectivity invites artisans, traders and professionals to make their contribution to this system by removing their waste as soon as necessary to the Grandes Cayes ecosite, as required by regulations.

As a reminder : The illegal dumping of household waste, bulky items and green waste is prohibited by law (Article L. 541-3 of the Environment Code).

The Collectivity of Saint-Martin invites the population to respect the schedules, the days and the places of deposit of the waste and thanks everyone for their citizen contribution to the respect of our common environment.

Users are asked to leave their bins in the places provided for this purpose, in the evening, between 18 p.m. and 23 p.m.

Fight against dumping of litter

As a reminder: It is strictly forbidden for companies and individuals to deposit their waste on the public highway or in illegal dumps. Site waste must imperatively be deposited at the Cul de Sac ecosite.

In accordance with the law, any producer or holder of waste is required to manage it or have it managed (article L541-2 of the Environmental Code).

The owners are therefore responsible for the deposits of waste on their property. Even if they are not the cause, their responsibility is engaged and they are required to clean up.

The effort of each citizen is essential to make this change successful.
