Bradshaw Residents Advised of Truck Traffic until Repairs to Landfill Tipper are Completed

Repairs that were conducted this past weekend on RVRA's rotary tipper at the Smith Gap Landfill uncovered additional issues that must be resolved in order for the tipper to safely operate. The tipper is used to unload solid waste transported from RVRA's transfer stations to the landfill by rail.

Without an operating tipper, the region's solid waste must be transported by truck for disposal. Initial projections are for the tipper to be down for an extended period of time, possibly a month.

During this period, RVRA will have to place truck traffic on Bradshaw Rd. in order to transport the region's solid waste to the landfill. Trucks will begin today entering and exiting Bradshaw Rd. via U.S. 311. Trucks will not operate during school bus hours.

For additional information, contact RVRA at (540) 857-5050.
