Everything that enters the US Virgin Islands, stays in the US Virgin Islands, and folks, that is just too much trash. Add in the waste from Hurricane Irma and Maria, and…
We need to make sure that everything we use, is used until it can’t be used anymore, and then turned into something else.
That is a mighty task…
But a task the Coral Bay Community Council has taken on!

We made a manual on how to “Reduce, Reuse, and Repurpose, and most of all Re-Think”, all the decisions we make when it comes to trash, waste, and the resources we have available to us.
If you decide to throw away your trash, or want to give away un used clothes, here is a guide to letting you know “Where your Trash goes!” (take the “Where your Trash goes” as a PDF on your smart phone)
And make sure you…RE-USE, RE-USE, RE-USE, AND THEN RE-USE IT AGAIN!
