VIWMA Advises Contracted Haulers to Remove Solid Waste Around Bin Sites

The Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority

In preparation for impending Tropical Storm Dorian, which will impact the Territory Wednesday and Thursday, the Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority (VIWMA) Preserving Paradise Team is advising contracted solid waste haulers to commence multiple hauls to remove solid waste or other disposed items in the vicinity of current bin sites.

These items may become potential windblown hazards as wind speed increases; additionally, the areas around the bin sites should always be debris free by the contracted haulers.

The community is urged to properly dispose of solid waste at the bin site, making sure to place refuse inside of the bins.

The VIWMA Preserving Paradise team urges the community to be safe and be prepared during this hurricane season.
