British Virgin Islands to Impose Fees on Owners of Derelict Vehicles
The government of the British Virgin Islands is planning to increase pressure on the owners of derelict vehicles by possibly charging them for the costs associated with removing old vehicles from the territory.
The Acting Manager of the Department of Waste Management emphasized that some owners tend to abandon their vehicles on roadsides, creating safety issues and negatively affecting the beauty of the territory.
The Department of Waste Management is collaborating with KMJ General Maintenance to remove all derelict vehicles and scrap metals from Pockwood Pond and export them to Columbia for recycling purposes.
The removal process began on April 11, 2023, and more than two thousand tonnes of scrap metals have been processed and loaded since then.
The project is expected to be completed in early June.
