VIWMA ANNOUNCES UPDATED BOVONI LANDFILL SCRAP METAL SECTION OPERATING SCHEDULE

 

(ST. THOMAS, USVI) - The Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority (VIWMA) Preserving Paradise team advises the community and solid waste haulers that the section of the Scrap Metal yard that collects and stores vehicles will be closed on Saturdays and Sundays and closed at 4:00pm daily.

Vehicles will only be accepted at the Scrap Metal section during the hours of 7:00am to 4:00pm Monday thru Fridays. Vehicles cannot be accepted outside of these hours. Vehicles that are left outside of these hours and placed on the landfill road pose a safety hazard as they obstruct passage and reduce traffic to one lane. 

This change would allow the Authority to gain better control of the road and provide a safer environment for our staff, large trucks, and other customers that utilize the landfill. Daily collection of other scrap metals, such as galvanize and white goods will continue to be collected in the scrap metal heap past the scale house.

The VIWMA Preserving Paradise team apologizes for the inconvenience and would like to thank the community for their patience and cooperation.
