Solid Waste Policy and Legislative Initiatives

The Northern Virginia Waste Management Board has developed fact sheets on state issues of critical importance to the proper and safe waste management and waste diversion in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Topics Include:

  • Recommended improvements to reduce the burden of Electronic Waste for localities,
  • The importance of the state Tire Fund as a tool to fund responsible tire recycling, 
  • The importance of the state Litter Fund as a critical fund for Virginia's local waste management, and
  • The importance of Materials Recovery Facilities and recyclable processing in Virginia's waste management operations.

The Northern Virginia Waste Management Board tracks State legislative and regulatory activities and makes recommendations to local legislative liaisons related to solid waste and recycling issues.
