ROANOKE COUNTY –  There will be no trash collection today (Tues. Jan 10) in Roanoke County due to vandalism. Police are investigating after someone smashed the windshields on the County’s trash trucks. The damage was discovered this morning.

The trucks are kept behind a secure gate at Roanoke County’s Public Service Center on Kessler Mill Road in Salem. The windshields were damaged as well as some truck mirrors. County officials, at this time, are uncertain how long the repairs will take. There were 15 trucks involved, and 18 windshields (there are two windshields per vehicle).

Roanoke County will provide more information on the trash collection schedule as it becomes available. For questions, please contact Anne Marie Green, Director of Roanoke County’s General Services Department, at 387-6200.
