Solid Waste Management Plan: 2015 Update
The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality requires all jurisdictions in the state to develop and implement official Solid Waste Management Plans that describe what the jurisdiction will do with waste generated within its borders for a 20-year period. State regulations require that the plan be updated every five years and the next update of the Fairfax County Solid Waste Management Plan is due to the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality in June 2015.
Fairfax County updated its Solid Waste Management Plan in 2014. This revised plan describes an integrated strategy for the management of waste and recyclables generated by businesses and residents. The revised plan will assist and guide the development of waste reduction, reuse, recycling, collection, transfer and disposal initiatives in Fairfax County from July 2015 to July 2035. It will serve as a strategic planning tool and will include goals to help the solid waste management program achieve environmental and financial sustainability.
