Yacht Garbage Disposal

Ashore, there is only one place to dispose of yacht garbage – the skips located off the Fish Market Jetty next to the Vegetable Market. These are reserved exclusively for yachties’ use. Alternatively, yacht garbage may be delivered “at sea” to Daffodil Marine or other reliable water taxis; charge usually $3.00 to $5.00 per bag. Dumping in unauthorized places is a prosecutable offence.

Help keep Bequia Clean and Green!
