(Virgin Islands) The Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority (“Authority”) announces a temporary abbreviated schedule for solid waste disposal. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Authority is establishing additional safeguards to aid in the reduction of community spread, thus, minimizing contact between our staff and the public.


Effective Tuesday, March 24, 2020 Solid Waste disposal at the following facilities will adhere to the following operating hours:


In an effort to employ the Authority’s social distancing protocol and minimize social contact with our most vulnerable population, the VIWMA has suspended the Special Needs Bulk Waste Collection Program.  Seniors and the disabled are asked to please hold bulky items until further notice.


Wastewater disposal at the Mangrove Lagoon Wastewater Treatment Plant on St. Thomas remains closed to finalize repairs to the septage receiving areas.


The VIWMA will continue to update the public.  Residents are reminded to contact the Authority at 340-712-4962 or 340-715-9500 with any questions or concerns.
