Bovoni Landfill to Open Sooner: Friday, Oct. 13

Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority

The Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority (VIWMA) has advised the St. Thomas and St. John communities that the Bovoni Landfill would be closed until 6 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 14. But it will be opened earlier than expected at 1 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 13.

The temporary closure allowed the contractor to stabilize the roadways and saturated areas that had occurred from the heavy rains.

For more information, contact the Communications Management Division at 513-7236 or email communications@viwma.org
