Sec. 21.2-58. Region 2000 Services Authority facility.
(a) Solid waste which is generated within the city may be deposited at a RSA facility. Upon the request of a RSA facility attendant, any person delivering solid waste for disposal at a RSA facility shall provide verification to such employee that the solid waste proposed for disposal was generated in the city.
(b) No scavenging or salvaging at a RSA facility shall be permitted except as may be contracted by the RSA. No person, except as specifically authorized by the RSA, shall dispose of any solid waste in a RSA facility, except during the hours of operation as established by the RSA and posted at the entrance to the facility.
(c) City residents are allowed an unlimited number of free trips up to five hundred (500) pounds to the RSA facility per calendar month from the house in which they reside. Residents must show proof of their Lynchburg address to the RSA facility attendant each time they come to the RSA facility. If a resident’s driver’s license (or I.D. card) does not show their correct and current address, they must also bring a current utility bill showing their address of the origin of the load. If a resident has someone else bring in a load for them, they must give the hauler either a driver’s license or a current utility bill from their address. In addition, the hauler must show their driver’s license. If a resident’s free trip goes over five hundred (500) pounds and/or if the resident makes other trips to the RSA facility during the calendar month after utilizing their free trip, the resident must pay by cash or check at the posted tipping fee.
As of July 1, 2012, residents are allowed an unlimited number of free trips of segregated brush and bulk materials. These trips do not count towards a resident‘s free monthly trip to the RSA facility. Any mixed loads of brush, bulk and trash will count towards the resident‘s one free trip per month.
Tires are not included as part of a resident’s free trip. There is a surcharge for disposal of tires. Tire disposal rates are posted at the RSA facility.
Rental property is considered a business. Landlords, who do not have a charge account with the RSA facility, must pay by cash or check at the posted tipping fee rate when bringing a load from property they own but do not reside in. If a business, church (or other charitable organization) does not have a charge account with the RSA facility, they must also pay by cash or check at the posted tipping fee rate.
Household hazardous waste collection is a service for Lynchburg residents only, businesses are excluded. Household hazardous waste collection days are announced yearly.
