The solid waste fee is an annual bill of $120 that supports the operations of the county-run landfill in Dry Fork and the many convenience centers spread throughout Pittsylvania County. The Personal Property Tax rate is $9.00 per every $100 of assessed value, while the Pittsylvania County Real Estate Tax Rate is $0.62 per every $100.00 in assessed value.
