SLIPPERY WHEN WET: VIWMA Closes Anguilla Dump Due To ‘Heavy Rains’
FREDERIKSTED — The Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority (VIWMA) told solid waste haulers that the Anguilla Landfill is closed due to slippery road conditions caused by heavy rains recently affecting St. Croix.
The landfill closure has prevented the transfer of residential solid waste from the Peters’ Rest Convenience Center (PRCC) causing it to be at capacity, thus, unable to accept additional residential solid waste material and requiring its temporary closure. In the interim, haulers are asked to hold waste until officially notified of the resumption of operations at the landfill.
Residents who utilize the Peter’s Rest Convenience Center can utilize the Mon Bijou bin site until notified of the reopening of PRCC through VIWMA public announcements.
The VIWMA Preserving Paradise team apologizes for the inconvenience and would like to thank the community for their continued patience and cooperation.
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.
