ROANOKE, Va. – The new solid waste fee will begin Monday in the city of Roanoke.

The first bill issued covers the first half of the yearly fee. That bill is due by Feb. 15. After that, the fee will be added onto real estate tax bills that property owners receive in the fall and spring.

People living in single-family homes will pay $96 per year, while people living in multiple dwelling units will pay $192 dollars per year. Business will pay $144.

People in the Central Business District who use the sealed compactor will not be charged this fee.
