(ROANOKE COUNTY, VA - March 17, 2023) This morning there was a facility fire in Roanoke City at Recycling and Disposal Solutions (RDS) which receives recycled materials from Roanoke County’s recycling trailer drop-off facilities. Due to damage sustained in the fire RDS is currently unable to accept recycled materials.
County staff is working on an alternative location to take its recycled materials but at this time, all recycling trailers will be removed Friday from the five drop-off centers. Signs will be placed at each drop-off location explaining the situation.
Citizens are asked to please be patient as staff works to resolve the issue. Updates to the recycling program will be posted to Roanoke County’s website on our Recycling web page.
