Solid Waste Management Plan
The Code of Virginia (Section 10.1-1411) and the Virginia Regulations for Solid Waste Management Planning (9 VAC 20-130-10 et seq) give statutory authority and regulatory responsibility and accountability to local governments for planning for the handling of all types of non-hazardous solid waste.
The purpose of the regulations is to protect the public health, public safety, the environment and natural resources by promoting a regional plan that considers the most effective and efficient use of available resources.
The Loudoun County Solid Waste Management Planning District was the first jurisdiction in Virginia to submit a Solid Waste Management Plan to the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and the first to have the plan approved in the 2004 revision. The district is comprised of all unincorporated and incorporated areas within Loudoun County, including the Towns of Hamilton, Hillsboro, Leesburg, Lovettsville, Middleburg, Purcellville, and Round Hill.
