Answer: The Solid Waste Disposal Fee is a dedicated fee to pay for all things solid waste – from operating the landfill to buying new equipment and land for convenience centers to setting aside money to close the current cell of the landfill when it’s time. The fee goes into the Solid Waste Enterprise Fund, which cannot be used for any other part of the county government at any time.
Answer: The fee for 2018 is $120. The fee can be changed annually by the Pittsylvania County Board of Supervisors.
Answer: All citizens who own a residential parcel – including homes, rental homes, apartments, duplexes, trailer parks or courts, and campgrounds – within the bounds of Pittsylvania County must pay $120 per each residential unit, unless they meet the requirements for one of the exemptions.
Answer: Yes. Town trash fees, which are set by Town Councils and not the County BOS, are curbside pickup convenience fees. The SWDF is a County landfill availability fee.
Answer: If payment of the fee is not made by June 20, then a notice of delinquency will be mailed to each property owner(s) not having paid the fee, advising that collection proceedings will begin in thirty (30) days. Supplemental assessments may be issued after the due dates and such assessments will be due thirty (30) days after mailing.
Any person, owner, or household who fails to make payment of the fee shall be required to pay penalty and interest on the unpaid fee, as set forth in Virginia Code § 58.1-3916.
In order to acquire an application for rezoning, special exception or other land use permit, all due and owing fees, penalties and accrued interested must be paid.
To the extent allowed by Virginia law, failure to pay the SWDF can result, after due process, in the placement of a lien on the property in question in favor of the County.
Current local, state, and federal regulations prohibit the burning and/or burial of residential waste on private property without adequate and appropriate permitting.
Once a determination has been made by the County’s Building Official, the information will be given to the County Commissioner of the Revenue for removal of the SWDF, and no assessment will be generated.
