Peter’s Rest Convenience Center Accommodates Waste Disposal Needs of St. Croix Residents

IMG_0594If your new year’s resolution is to clean out the junk in your house,  get familiar with Peter’s Rest Convenience Center (aka the dump), located mid-island near Sunny Isle on St. Croix.  Opened in April 2013, the clean and well-organized facility was a welcome replacement for the dump formerly located on the adjacent land.  The staff is genuinely friendly, can direct you to the right bin and can even assist with unloading.  Peter’s Rest Convenience Center was created by Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority (VIWMA) and is operated by Bates Trucking and Trash Removal.

Hours of Operation

Monday – Friday / 6 a.m. – 8 p.m.

Saturday / 6 a.m. – 4 p.m.

(Yes, you’re reading right.  This government facility is open on holidays!)

Items Accepted

1 – Yellow

The bins marked with yellow number one signs are for general household waste (trash).

2 – Orange

The bins marked with orange number two signs are intended for the following items:

  • Green waste
  • Bulk waste

(This is your chance to recycle St. Croix!  Rinse and save your cans to bring here.)

3 – Green

The bins marked with green number three signs are for household hazardous waste (HHW).

This is the right place for e-waste, such as old televisions and computers.  They will have you sign a register to use the HHW area, to ensure this facility is being used by individual residents only.  Businesses are to use the St. Croix Transfer Station.
