PHOTO of the Day: DWM offering wrecker services?

A bus was spotted inside a dumpster on Wickham's Cay II recently. Photo: VINO
ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- There have been many complaints over the years, including from legislators and operators of garbage trucks, about persons taking certain bulky waste to dumpsters instead of transporting them to the landfill at Pockwood Pond for proper disposal.

Among some items that have ended up in dumpsters, or alongside them, are sofa suites, refrigerators, stoves, television sets and beds.

But none beats an entire vehicle fitted inside a dumpster on Wickham’s Cay II, Tortola, recently!

The Department of Waste Management (DWM) may have a good explanation for this; however.

    So when they run the VIN number on this bus, they will be paying through the nose big time. The backhoe that put this in there must not have good sense either. Either way somebody will pay.

    I don’t want to knock down everything the government do but why is the government not Channeling efforts into recycling instead of things like this. Leave the wrecker services to the private sector and focus on this territory garage problem.

      It is a question not a definitive statement. They are asking if government is in the wrecker business not saying that they are.

      Agree in principle but as you can see ...left to the private sector this territory will become more and more of a junkyard for cars and boats and whatever . There is no accountability for anything . Look at all the boats junked up since Earl in Baughers and Road Reef . Look at Sea Cows . Up in the mangroves is the piece of junk a local businessman just left there . Bottom of the Elevator .... an abandoned piece of equiptment used for one job eight years ago . Ridge Road ... everyones private parking lot for junk cars .. I will not go on but my point is this junk has to start being cleaned up and owners held accountable ... regardless of their last name . This territory belongs to all of us ... not a chosen few
