Yes. All businesses in the unincorporated areas of Loudoun County must separate at least one principle recyclable material (PRM) generated annually in the largest quantity. In multi-tenant commercial properties in which individual businesses do not manage their own solid waste, the principle recyclable material shall be determined on the basis of the property’s combined waste stream. The term "business" means a business, corporation, association, firm, partnership, joint stock company, county, city, town, governmental body, or any other legal entity.
Recyclable material may not be disposed as trash, but must be deposited at a lawful recycling drop-off center, recycling facility, approved facility, or through a permitted solid waste collector that provides recycling services.
Any business that separates recyclable material from its solid waste stream and such source separated material is collected and transported by someone other than those currently permitted in Loudoun County is required to submit an annual recycling report to the Department of General Services by January 31 of each calendar year for the preceding year.
Please contact the Department of General Services, Waste Management Division, by emailing [email protected] or calling 703-771-5552 for the annual reporting requirements and report form. If your waste collector is not currently permitted, please contact this office with the business name and telephone number of your waste collector.
