VALLEY, Virgin Gorda, VI- Over 400 derelict vehicles were transported off Virgin Gorda last weekend as the Department of Waste Management continues its derelict collection programme.

The rigorous collection process which began on Sunday, July 26, 2020, and ended on Monday, July 27, 2020, saw the collection of derelicts which were then transported on a barge to Tortola for further processing and export out of the Territory.

Assistant Manager for the Department of Waste Management, Mr Anselm Meyers stated that the collection process went well and explained that the small amount that was left behind will be collected and transported off the island at a later date.

For more information on derelict collections, persons can call the Department of Waste Management at 468-4934 or visit www.bvi.gov.vg.

The Department of Waste Management remains committed to enhancing the natural beauty of the Territory by utilising state of the art waste management technology to ensure timely collection, disposal and where possible, recycling of waste.

    The residents of Pockwood Pond would like to know when the disgusting sight of those vehicles will be packed on barges and shipped away?? This project started in 2017, there was a barge that showed up (twice, if so many) and that was it. The more time those vehicles are there, is the more the land owner will continue to receive tons and tons of money from the government..
