January 6, 2020

(St. Croix, USVI) - The Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority (‘VIWMA” or “Authority”) Preserving Paradise team advises the community that the Anguilla Landfill on St. Croix will be closed to the public on Monday, January 6, 2020, due to continued fire suppression activities taking place at the site.

Solid waste haulers are advised that bin site and house to house refuse will be accepted at the Transfer Station while the top of the landfill will remain closed to minimize disruption to fire suppression activities.

The fire was reported at 2:30 am Sunday, January 05, 2020. The Virgin Islands Fire Service, VIWMA contractors and personnel continue to work diligently to suppress the fire which is located on the southeast corner of the landfill.

The Authority will continue to provide updates on this situation. Residents with respiratory disorders/conditions should take precautions to minimize their exposure to smoke as wind directions change.

The VIWMA Preserving Paradise team apologizes for the inconvenience and would like to thank the community for their continued patience and cooperation.
