Warning on objects washing ashore
Sealed containers of liquid that wash ashore should not be handled or opened, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources has warned.
The reminder was prompted by debris recently found on the coastline. The department cautioned that the objects could contain liquids that present a health and safety or environmental risk.
Containers that are found should be reported immediately to the Bermuda Maritime Operations Centre at 297-1010 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources will investigate and coordinate with the Department of Parks and Ministry of Public Works to recover and dispose of any containers found.
Spills on the Sea should also be reported to the Bermuda Maritime Operations Centre.
