ST. CROIX - In a matter of weeks, the V.I. Waste Management Authority will open its Peter's Rest Convenience Center and take a step closer to changing the way trash is disposed of in the territory.

Stella Saunders, Waste Management spokeswoman, said the center is part of the plan to reduce the number of open public bin sites that exist in the territory.

"We want to get rid of all of them eventually, but right now we only have four bin sites on St. Croix," she said. "Because of the difference in the terrain, we have 26 bins on St. Thomas and 28 on St. John."
