Crusher Cubes Cars at Susanaberg Transfer Station

The V.I. Waste Management Authority sent a car crusher to the Department of Public Works’ Susanaberg Transfer Station last week to help dispose of the estimated 2,000 vehicles at the St. John dump. The crusher takes one full-sized vehicle or two smaller vehicles and compacts it into a cube. Officials expected to have use of the crusher for about two weeks to deal with all vehicles at Susanaberg. When complete, the cubes will be hauled off St. John and shipped stateside for disposal, according to DPW officials.
