VIWMA Urges Preparedness for Hurricane Season

June 6, 2006 – The Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority advises residents to remove and dispose of unnecessary debris, waste and other non-hazardous waste materials from around their homes and properties.
VIWMA reminds the public to refrain from disposing of unacceptable waste, such as batteries; tires; medical, liquid or hazardous waste; appliances and vehicles; asbestos; grease; junked cars; gas cylinders; and construction and demolition debris at the public collection bin sites.
Items that are acceptable at the landfills include: appliances without fluids; vehicles without tires; batteries or fluids; gas cylinders that are punctured or have the tops cut off; construction and demolition debris in 4-inch cubes; and yard waste and scrap metal that is reduced to 4-feet lengths. Hazardous waste materials are to be disposed of through a permitted private waste hauler and at a permitted disposal site.
