PWD TO PICK UP FURNITURE, APPLIANCE DISCARDS

0

The Public Works Department will be picking up discarded furniture and appliances on St. John on Tuesday, Jan. 11.
Public Works Deputy Commissioner Ira Wade said there will be two collections sites and they will be in operation from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
There will be a 30-cubic-yard bin at the Pine Peace site, Wade said, with a backhoe available to load heavy and bulk items into it.
In Coral Bay, a bin will be in place at the junction of Route 107 and King’s Hill Road near the old Joe’s Discount store.
The bulk waste collection day is part of a Public Works effort to relieve the burden placed on public and private sanitation crews since the Susannaberg transfer station was closed in mid-November.
Wade said only furniture and appliances may be dropped off at the bins on Jan. 11; garbage and trash will not be accepted.
With the transfer station closed, Wade said, people who would have taken their furniture and construction waste there have been putting them into roadside bins that are not intended for such use. The bulk waste pickup is intended to encourage the public to discontinue that practice.
