VIWMA Urges Residents To Separate Solid Waste And Use Its Convenience Centers
CHRISTIANSTED — The Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority (VIWMA) urges residents to source separate their household solid waste and use the Convenience Centers located on St. Thomas and St. Croix.
Source separation involves separating waste materials by type when being
discarded so they can be recycled. Convenience centers are facilities that provide several waste containers to accommodate source-separated waste.
The Mandahl Convenience Center (MCC) is located on the north east side of St. Thomas and the Peter’s Rest Convenience Center (PRCC) is on Queen Mary Highway on St. Croix.
Each facility is open daily from 6 am to 4 pm. Holiday schedules may
vary. The convenience centers are manned by courteous and knowledgeable staff who will assist you with the proper disposal your household waste.
Items Permitted at the Convenience Centers include:
Household Waste, White Goods (refrigerators, stoves, water heaters, freezers, washing machines/dryers, and air conditioners), Bulk Waste (furniture, mattresses, scrap wood and scrap metal) and E- waste or electronic devices including computers, televisions and cell phones.
No more than two loads of household waste per resident, per day, will be allowed. Business and commercial waste, green waste and agricultural waste are strictly prohibited from being disposed of at the convenience centers.
Please call our hotline at 844-WMA-USVI (844-962-8784) to report any illegal dumping or to report a service problem.
