The Government of the British Virgin Islands is currently developing an ambitious Waste Management Strategy aimed at maximum prevention, re-use and recovery of solid waste.

In support of this, four consultants submitted proposals to the Virgin Islands Recovery and Development Agency for consulting services to provide a feasibility assessment and concept design for a sanitary landfill establishment, existing waste site rehabilitation and establishment of an auxiliary services station in the British Virgin Islands.

RDA’s Director of Programme Strategy and Project Lead Neil Smith said, “Seven companies were shortlisted by the Government of the Virgin Islands to participate in this opportunity of which four responded by the bid submission deadline to the RDA on Friday, 7 May, 2021 at 10:00 a.m.  The technical proposals will now be evaluated by a team of evaluators following which the financial proposals will be reviewed.”

Feedback from the ongoing public consultations being led by the Ministry of Health and Social Development will feed into the development of the successful consultant’s methodology.

The overarching outcome for waste management is to provide waste diversion and disposal facilities which support the reduction of waste and provide a sustainable means for disposal that embodies accountability and transparency throughout the waste life cycle.  The successful consultant’s outcome must be consistent with the Draft Waste Management Strategy and align with Sustainable Development Goals representing value for money whilst embracing a circular economy.

The Virgin Islands Recovery and Development Agency continues to support the Government of the Virgin Islands with its ambitions recovery plan and provides technical expertise in support of major infrastructure projects.
