The future Mount Greenmore

Remediation of the George Town Landfill could turn Mount Trashmore green in more ways than one. Not only will capping the mound include a layer of topsoil that will one day support the growth of grasses and shrubs, but remediation will also reduce the Cayman Islands’ impact on global warming. 


Dart's response to COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic remains a global crisis on an unprecedented scale. At Dart, our collective priority is protecting the health and safety of our people and our community, while continuing daily business operations as best as we can. 

As the virus continues to have an impact on human welfare and global economies, Dart is closely monitoring advice and guidelines from the Cayman Islands Government and international health authorities and adapting accordingly. With the successful steps taken locally to suppress the virus and widespread testing under way, the Cayman Islands is now at Level 2 (minimal suppression) in its management of COVID-19, facilitating the continued controlled reopening of the local economy.


Charting Cayman's future

At the beginning of 2020, the concept of a global lockdown would have been unfathomable. Months later, the devastating effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on lives and livelihoods around the world remains hard to comprehend.

Even in the Cayman Islands, where the spread of the virus has been successfully suppressed, COVID-19 has caused upheavals in every aspect of daily life. As the world looks to define a "new normal," many people are taking the opportunity to pause, reflect and reimagine a better future.


CIS welcomes a new director

It's been a year of change at Cayman International School. 

After having to act quickly and adapt to fully remote and online learning because of the COVID-19 pandemic, CIS — as the school is more often called — has also welcomed a new director, something that was planned for almost a year before the pandemic started.


Landfill remediation begins

While most Cayman Islands residents were sheltering at home during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown, essential employees across the island were hard at work providing vital services and progressing strategic projects, including capping the main mound at the George Town Landfill. 


Using technology in a pandemic

As governments worldwide seek ways to safely manage the flow of people across borders, it has become clear that medical innovation and technology will play a vital role. The pandemic has prompted a range of efforts to develop and adapt technology to help public health systems control the spread of the disease, from mobile apps to thermal imaging cameras. 


Landfill fires: What you need to know

Following several blazes at the George Town Landfill this year, there was a lot of speculation about how landfill fires start, the steps that can be taken to prevent or extinguish them, and how remediation can reduce the risk of future incidents.
