The Roanoke Valley Resource Authority in Virginia has just begun a $5.2 million 50-acre expansion of its Smith Gap Regional Landfill. The Authority is permitted to use 640 acres of the 1,200-acre site of which about 50 is already in use. The development of the additional 50 acres is expected to meet the region's needs for the foreseeable future. The landfill receives waste exclusively by rail from the Authority's Tinker Creek Transfer Station in Northeast Roanoke about 30 miles away.
