The purpose of this form is to ensure that designs of multifamily
property (apartment and condominium) sites provide space for collection
of refuse and recycling generated at the location. This form must be
completed as part of all multifamily dwelling site plan
applications, pursuant to Chapter 109.1 of the Code of the
County of Fairfax and to Chapter 10 of the Public
Facilities Manual. Please review the manual for additional guidance
regarding the design of trash and recycling facilities. If you have
questions regarding solid waste management, please call

County Plan Name
(e.g., Burke, Herndon)
Part 1: Waste Stream Calculation
This calculation will estimate the quantity of trash and recycling
that will be generated from this property. Once the waste quantity is
estimated, the information can be used to design trash and recycling
collection areas that will provide adequate storage capacity and truck
Directions: Determine the total number of residential units
of all buildings on the property. The size of the units does
not matter. Multiply that number by the Annual Waste Generation Rate of
2.15 tons per unit. See illustrated formula below.
The Annual Waste Generation Rate of 2.15 tons/unit is derived from the
U.S. EPA average daily per-person waste generation rate and U.S. Census
average household size.

Part 2: Description of Solid Waste and Recycling System
ALL MULTIFAMILY DWELLING UNIT COMPLEXES MUST RECYCLE
MIXED PAPER AND CARDBOARD (CHAPTER 109.1 OF THE CODE OF THE
COUNTY OF FAIRFAX, VA). SPACE FOR COLLECTING THESE MATERIALS
SEPARATELY FROM OTHER TRASH MUST BE INCORPORATED INTO THE DESIGN
PROCESS (CHAPTER 10,
PUBLIC FACILITIES MANUAL).
The plan design must include elements that will provide for the
proper, legal, and safe storage and collection of all solid waste.
Include the following information: how the plan design elements will
facilitate the separation of recyclable materials from the waste
stream; how and where solid waste and recyclable materials will be
stored; and, how solid waste and recyclables will be collected. Be sure
to include descriptions of internal and/or external storage,
compactors, balers, chutes, etc.
Use this pattern to help design trash and recycling areas, based on
your calculations in Part 1:

waste and recycling system below.
Part 3: Certification of Accuracy and Completeness
I hereby certify that the above information is accurate and complete
to the best of my knowledge. I certify that I have read the
requirements for incorporating recycling systems into the design
process described in Chapter 10 of the Public Facilities Manual. I
understand that any amendments to the plan involving a use or ownership
change will require resubmission of this plan statement.
