Hurricane season: The Collectivity is launching a major collective cleaning from July 8 to August 8! 


The Collectivity wishes to clean up the territory before the high hurricane season and asks the population to join in this effort by cleaning up the private domain in the various districts of the island and by evacuating its bulky items to the side of the road. 

During this period, the services of the Community and service providers will collect these bulky items as they are deposited on the side of the roads. 

To avoid inconvenience in the middle of the day, bulky items must be left by the side of the road between 19 p.m. and 22 p.m. They are then collected from 23 p.m. 

Each citizen is invited to do his part and clean up his place of life. The community also calls on construction companies, condominium trustees, or even car garage managers, to fully mobilize within the framework of this campaign and to clean up their properties. 

The objective is to give the opportunity to each citizen to carry out a major cleaning so that the territory is clean in the long term. 

Grande Cayes Ecosite: 05 90 87 25 47 – open Monday to Friday: 06 a.m. to 00 p.m. / Saturday: 16 a.m. to 00 p.m. 

Galisbay recycling center: 05 90 87 79 48 – open Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 00 p.m.


The Collectivity continues its effort to clean up ELVs, BHUs and ravines

As part of this great collective cleaning, the community of Saint-Martin is currently removing car and boat wrecks and plans to clean the main ravines in August. 

Removal of car wrecks

In parallel with this collective cleaning campaign, the Collectivity continues to collect end-of-life vehicles (VHU) throughout the territory. President Louis Mussington has just signed a purchase order for the removal of 600 ELVs. 

If you wish to get rid of a wrecked vehicle, please send your request together with the necessary documents (copy of the gray card, copy of your identity document) to: By email: 

Two telephone contacts are at your disposal: 0690 88 69 29 ou 0690 22 29 73 – Department of the Environment, Water and Energy – Environment department. 

The community collects end-of-life vehicles free of charge on public property, and in some cases on private property. This operation will continue throughout the month of July. Enjoy!


Removal of boat wrecks

The Collectivity is currently proceeding, within the framework of a public contract awarded to the company KOOLE, to the removal of 140 shipwrecks in the lagoon of Simpson Bay and on the maritime public domain of the French part. This operation is conducted in partnership with the European Union, which finances 85% of this work. 

Gully cleaning 

The Collectivité will clean up the gullies requiring intervention before the high hurricane season, during the month of August. A communication will be made in due time to announce the start of the work.
