VIWMA Says It Is Temporarily Not Accepting ‘Green Waste’ At Anguilla Landfill

FREDERIKSTED — The Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority (VIWMA) said that it is no longer accepting green waste at the St. Croix Transfer Station and Anguilla Landfill.

The public and all haulers are asked to hold their green waste until collection resumes on Monday, October 22, 2018.

“The VIWMA Preserving Paradise team apologizes for any inconvenience that this may cause and would like to thank the community for their patience and cooperation,” the authority said.

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everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling.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.
