Press Releases


(St. Thomas, USVI) - The Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority (“VIWMA” or “Authority”) Preserving Paradise team announces the removal of the residential waste bin at Nadir.  The bin will be removed while repairs to manholes are ongoing.  Crews are presently clearing and cleaning the sewer lines near the Clinton Phipps Racetrack of an abundance of grease and debris which caused blockages causing manhole overflows. 


The Nadir bin is a rear loader unit which cannot be safely accessed by the contractor while the repairs are ongoing.  Residents who utilize the Nadir bin site are asked to dispose of household waste at the Brookman Road bin site until further notice.


VIWMA assures the public the Brookman waste site has adequate capacity; the site is serviced daily and there should be no refuse overflow.  Businesses are hereby reminded; it is against the law for waste generated at commercial establishments to be deposited at residential bin sites.  Commercial waste must be taken to the landfill for disposal.  Additionally, bulk waste, including mattresses, appliances, furniture and other large items are prohibited at the residential bin sites and must be disposed of at the landfill.


To report illegal dumping, please call the 24-Hour Hotline at 844-WMA-USVI (844-962-8784).  It’s our home! Let’s keep it clean!


The VIWMA Preserving Paradise Team continues to work diligently to provide reliable services to the public and would like to thank the community for their patience and cooperation.
