DEQ Approves a Regional Recycling Rate of 39.9%

On June 5th, the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality completed their review of the Thomas Jefferson Solid Waste Planning Unit’s Recycling Rate Report for 2013 and has approved the regional recycling rate of 39.9%. The Thomas Jefferson Solid Waste Planning Unit includes Albemarle County, Fluvanna County, Greene County and the City of Charlottesville.

The 2013 rate is a 5.5% increase over the 2012 rate of 37.8%. The increased rate of recycling can be attributed to improved recycling rate reporting by the solid waste industry and an increase in single stream recycling (21% increase). Decreases in recycling rates were reporting in metal (-36%) Used Oil and antifreeze (-66%) which can be attributed to reporting and servicing dates by recyclers.
