VIWMA Advises Residents on Sorting Waste; Cancryn Bin Site Reopens

Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority

The Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority (VIWMA) advises residents on St. Thomas that the recently closed Cancryn Bin Site is now open for the disposal of household waste only.

VIWMA is requesting the community’s support in sorting waste that is being placed on the side of the roads. Waste must be separated by green waste (trees, branches, grass and cuttings), construction and debris materials, and metals.

Do not dispose of electronic waste (computers, televisions, radios, etc.). The cooperation of residents is needed to ensure the debris is collected and then handled quickly and effectively.
