Data Source and Calculation

The Recycling Rate Reports obtained from localities are used to determine the percentage of the 71 local solid waste planning units established in accordance with Section 10.1-1411 of the Virginia Waste Management Act, which achieve the recommended recycling rate. .  Changes to the Statute during the 2012 Session reduced the reporting frequency for planning units of a population of 100,000 or less to once every four years.

Seventeen SWPUs will still report annually, and measure will be based upon this reporting for CYs 2013, 2014, 2015. *Virginia Code §10.1-1411 was amended by legislation introduced during the 2012 Session of the Virginia General Assembly and requires annual recycling rate reporting by each SWPU or locality with a population of greater than 100,000 according to the most recent U.S. Census. Each SWPU or locality with a population of 100,000 or less according to the most recent U.S. Census must submit a recycling survey report once every four years.
