USVI: Politicians find gold in rubbish

Less than two months after recycling resumed on St. Thomas and St. John, it once again is on hold - the second time in 13 months the government has halted the program.
The Anti-Litter and Beautification Fund, which pays for the commission's programs, is overdrawn by more than $500,000 because other government agencies have used the fund for other purposes.

Last year, the commission suspended recycling on St. Thomas and St. John because the contractor that was handling recycling at the time spent all of its $400,000 allotment.
