The purpose of this form is to ensure that nonresidential buildings
and site designs provide space for collection of refuse and recycling
generated at the location. This form must be completed as part of all
nonresidential site plan applications, pursuant to Chapter 109.1 of the Code of the
County of Fairfax, VA 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)
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 square footage and uses of all interior
areas from this property. You will need to do a separate calculation
for each area that has a different use.
Floor Area (sq ft) this use x Annual Waste
Gen. Rate for this use (from chart) = Annual Tons Generated
Next, add together all of the Annual Tons Generated. The sum
is the Combined Annual Waste Stream.
Enter your Combined
Annual Waste Stream here:
If the Combined Annual Waste Stream Quantity is greater than
100 tons, recycling of one Principal Recyclable Material may
be required in addition to recycling of mixed paper and cardboard.
Check one of the following options:
The Combined Annual Waste Stream
Quantity for this property is less than 100 tons.
Therefore, a system for recycling mixed paper and cardboard is
the only requirement.
The Combined Annual Waste Stream
Quantity for this property is greater than 100 tons.
Therefore, recycling a Principal Recyclable Material in
addition to mixed paper and cardboard may be required.
For properties with a Combined Annual Waste Stream Quantity greater
than 100 tons, indicate if substantial generation of any of the
following waste items is anticipated at this property (check all
ALL NONRESIDENTIAL FACILITIES 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:

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.
