Standing at higher than 80 ft, our national landfill Mount Trashmore is the highest point on Grand Cayman. For those in the vicinity, even before the noxious fumes hit your nose, the grandiosity is sure to strike the eye…

For the mathematicians or the just the plain curious among us… perhaps you would like a frame of reference of how tall 80 feet really is… We thought we’d give you some perspective.
