The Government of Sint Maarten wants to transform Sint Maarten’s existing methods of disposing solid waste at the two landfills on Pond Island into an integrated system of solid waste management.
Currently, most of the solid waste collected in neighborhoods ends up in these landfills, which were not designed to handle the types and volume of waste disposed of there. The main landfill has grown considerably in the last two decades. Likewise, the adjacent landfill – known as the ‘Irma Dump’ – is also quickly accumulating larger waste materials, such as discarded furniture and waste from construction sites.
