Next Monday, Roanoke City residents will see some significant changes in their trash collection. The new plan will split the city into four sectors.
Crews will work the northwest sector on Monday, northeast on Tuesday, southeast on Wednesday, and southwest on Thursday.
The new plan will end alley collection for many residents... but city crews will continue to serve some alleys where residents have a hard time rolling cans to the curb.
