VIWMA Advises Haulers of Proper Procedures on Roadways

The Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority

The Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority (VIWMA) reminds all haulers to please observe the following rules:

  • Do not overload the vehicle (it could cause material to fall on the roadways).
  • All trucks should have proper tail gates and tarps to contain the waste.
  • All commercial haulers must have a valid permit issued by VIWMA. Those hauling without a permit are subject to a fine of up to $1,000 and/or imprisonment of not more than 180 days.

Please call 844-WMA-USVI (VIWMA’s 24-hour hotline) to report any violation or concern.

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