Landfill & Recycling

Draft Landfill Permit Released for Public Comment

The County Landfill operates under a permit from the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ). We recently made a change to our long-term plans, including digging less and reducing the number of planned cells from nine down to seven (without changing the expected footprint). DEQ has given their initial approval to our plans, but will accept public comment on the draft permit from September 2nd to October 2nd. Click here to learn more and find out how to offer comment.
