SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT PLANNING GRANT:
CBCC has a $73,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture – Rural Development/RUS (USDA) to fill in more elements of identified watershed planning needs.
Activities: Outreach activities emphasizing the four R’s (reduce, reuse, repurpose, recycle). This means having a proper recycling and waste acceptance center Coral Bay. CBCC will be working on expediting (and locating funding for) the removal of the dumpsters from the mangrove shoreline and building of a reuse, recycle, and household waste disposal/transfer center in Coral Bay, called a “Convenience Center”. Our partners included the VI Waste Management Authority and the Island Green Living Association.
