Loudoun Landfill to Require Proof of Origin of Commercial Construction, Demolition Waste

Link to information about the Loudoun County landfill

Beginning February 1, 2023, Loudoun County will require written documentation that commercial construction and demolition waste being delivered to the Loudoun County Solid Waste Management Facility comes from sources within Loudoun. In addition, all haulers of commercial construction and demolition waste must be pre-authorized to use the landfill. 

The new requirements reinforce existing county policy that only waste generated in Loudoun County is accepted at the landfill and come in response to a recent increase in the amount of commercial construction and demolition waste being delivered to the facility.

Pre-authorization forms and information about the new requirement for written documentation have been mailed to more than 200 commercial haulers, contractors, businesses and institutions that have landfill accounts and that routinely deliver commercial construction and demolition waste. 

Documentation accepted at the time of delivery includes affidavits from the property owner or customer, construction permits, notice of award, work orders or signed quotes. Other forms of written documentation may be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Under Chapter 1084 of the Loudoun County Codified Ordinances, commercial construction and demolition waste is solid waste which is produced or generated during the construction, remodeling, or repair of pavements, houses, commercial buildings, and other structures. Construction waste includes, but is not limited to, lumber, wire, sheetrock, broken brick, shingles, glass, pipes, concrete, paving materials, and metal and plastic if they are part of the construction material or empty containers for such materials.

More information, including a link to the pre-authorization form, is available at loudoun.gov/landfill
