It’s been a little over a week since contractors began their final pass for debris collection in the USVI. Since then, debris has been removed from several areas throughout the territory, according to the V.I. Department of Public Works.

Currently, contractors are working in the following areas on St. Thomas:

Solberg
Donoe
Raphune Hill
Old Tutu
St. Joseph & Rosendahl
Red Hook
Bordeaux
Bovoni
Caret Bay
Annas Retreat
Dorothea
Hull Bay
Nazareth
Smith Bay
Mariendahl
Hospital Ground

Contractors are working in the following areas on St. John:

Bordeaux
Great Cruz Bay
Glucksberg
Sanders Bay
Oppenheimer
Mongoose Junction

If you are still in possession of debris and live in an area on St. Thomas or St. John that is not included in this list, please call the CERES alert hotline at (340) 643-3296.

The debris collection process is a little different on St. Croix, where crews are working in zones. The island was separated into 14 zones, with one crew assigned to each zone. On St. Croix, a deadline of February 15, 2018 has been set as the last day for debris to be picked up. If you live on St. Croix, and are still in possession of debris, please call (340) 643-8746.

As a reminder, all debris, territory-wide, should already be placed on the roadside to ensure it is picked up during this final pass.

The Department of Public Works thanks the community for their cooperation during this debris collection process. Follow us on Facebook @usvidpw to stay abreast of all things DPW.
