UVI to Begin Accepting Glass Beverage Bottle Waste for recycling beginning on March 27

The Virgin Islands Marine Advisory (VIMAS) and the Virgin Islands Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (VI-EPSCoR) are now accepting glass beverage bottle waste to be crushed and utilized for the creation of sandbags at the former West Bay Supermarket beginning on March 27, 2021, from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. and will continue every last Saturday of every month unless otherwise stated.

This is an effort to reduce the amount of glass beverage bottle waste that enters the landfills and utilize the end-product for something that will benefit the Territory.
