(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.

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.
