Several government facilities are set to close early on Thursday as staff mourn the passing of long-serving public works employee William Evans.

According to a spokeswoman, the Airport Waste Management Facilty, the Marsh Folly Composting Facility and Waste Collection are all set to close an noon so staff can attend Mr Evan’s funeral.

All three are expected to reopen at the normal time the following day.

“To service residents of the west end, the Ministry of Public Works requests that west end household waste be placed out for collection on Wednesday with trucks collecting in that area all day Wednesday, and up until noon on Thursday,” the spokeswoman said. “Household waste should be securely bagged, and placed at regular collection sites, preferably in lidded bins to avoid scavenging by wildlife.

“The ministry also reminds the public of the change in waste collection the week of June 19, National Heroes Day, when east end garbage will be collected on Tuesday, June 20 and west end garbage will be collected on Wednesday, June 21. Recyclables will be collected in the west on Thursday and in the east on Friday.
