CHARLOTTE AMALIE — 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 p.m. daily.

Vehicles will only be accepted at the Scrap Metal section during the hours of 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. 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 continues to work diligently to provide reliable services and would like to thank the community for their cooperation.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
