VIWMA: Scrap Metal Yard Closed Saturdays and Sundays ‘Until Further Notice’

CHRISTIANSTED — The Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority (VIWMA) advised solid waste haulers Friday that the section of the scrap metal yard that collects and stores scrap metal to include vehicles will be closed on Saturdays and Sundays until further notice.

Vehicles will only be accepted at the Scrap Metal section during the hours of 8:00am to 4:00pm Monday thru Fridays. Scrap metal and vehicles cannot be accepted outside of these hours.

In late February, VIWMA said it was closing scrap metal yards on Sundays.

“The VIWMA Preserving Paradise Team continues to work diligently to provide reliable services and would like to thank the community for their patience and cooperation,” the authority said.

For more information, contact the Office of Communications Management at 340-513-4171 or email

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everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling.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