Solid Waste Planning and Recycling Regulations [9 VAC 20 ‑ 130]
Fast-Track Amendment to Clarify and Reorganize
General Information
Action Summary After the 2015 periodic review, DEQ staff met individually with solid waste planning units to identify areas of the regulation that could be clarified or improved. As a result of these meetings and agency staff feedback, the regulation is being amended to be more easily understood. The primary change being made to the regulation is the re-ordering of regulatory sections. The regulation is being re-structured to address the requirements for solid waste planning units prior to discussing solid waste management plan requirements. The regulation is also being restructured to move the requirement for planning units to maintain and update solid waste management plans to a standalone section. The regulation is also being amended to clarify the difference between major and minor amendments to a solid waste management plan. Other changes are being made to clarify the requirements of the regulation. No new requirements are being added to the regulation. The regulation has also been revised to be consistent with the language found in ยง10.1-1411 C concerning recycling rate credits.
