VIWMA Asks Community to Sort Debris Being Put on Side of Roads

147

The V.I. Waste Management Authority (VIWMA) is requesting the community’s support in sorting debris that is being placed on the side of the roads. The Authority is asking residents to separate the debris as follows:

  1. Debris must be separated by green waste (such as trees, branches, grass and cuttings) and household waste (such as bottles, cans, clothing, disposables, food packaging and food scraps).
  2. Residents who receive house-to-house/curbside collection are asked to place their garbage outside on their regularly scheduled pick up day, beginning Monday, Sept. 11.
  3. Do not dispose of electronic waste (computers, televisions, radios, etc.). The public will be advised soon regarding disposal locations.

The public’s cooperation is needed to ensure the debris is collected and handled quickly and effectively.

Unlike many news organizations, we haven't put up a paywall - we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. Our sites are more popular than ever, but advertising revenues are falling - so you can see why we could use your help. Our independent journalism costs time, money and hard work to keep you informed, but we do it because we believe that it matters. If everybody who appreciates our reporting efforts were to help fund it for as little as $1, our future would be much more secure. Thanks in advance for your support!
