About RVRA

The Roanoke Valley Resource Authority (RVRA) consists of four Member communities: the Cities of Roanoke and Salem, the County of Roanoke and the Town of Vinton.  Our mission is to provide environmentally sound disposal in the most cost effective manner to our members, residents and commercial haulers.

Residents and businesses generate approximately 1,000 tons of waste every day.  In 2021, the Authority transitioned from rail transportation to trucking.
