Release Date:
Friday, 4 December 2020 - 5:19pm

The public is advised that from Monday, December 7, all personal and household waste must be disposed at the communal bins in a nearby area.

This is due to the house to house waste collection programme being on a temporary hiatus until further notice. Any inconvenience is regretted.

Persons are also reminded that the dumping of bulky waste at communal bin sites is illegal and that bulky waste should be disposed of directly to either the Pockwood Pond site in Tortola or the Valley Hill site on Virgin Gorda.
