IX. Solid Waste

IX. Solid Waste Management Mission Statement: The Department of Environmental Services strives to provide a safe, efficient and environmentally friendly convenience site, landfill, and recycling system for county residents and businesses. A. Existing Facilities Solid waste management in the County is handled through the Department of Environmental Services. The landfill is a self-supporting enterprise fund. The landfill and major recycling facility are located on the Corral Farm, just southeast of Warrenton off Route 29. There are six convenience sites operated through the general fund, in addition to the Corral Farms site, scattered throughout the County – Markham, Marshall, New Baltimore, Catlett, Morrisville and Remington. With the exception of Remington, which handles only recycling materials, the convenience sites handle general trash disposal, as well as the recycling of many products, including cardboard, mixed paper, glass, aluminum, metal and plastics (#1 PETE and #2 HDPE). B. Facility Standards / Level of Service Under current growth conditions of 2% to 3% annually, the existing landfill site has approximately 50-70 years of life, as long as the County continues to recycle, and the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) will continue to permit the planned management of the site. The planned management of the site includes efforts to mine construction and demolition debris from the existing landfill to recover soil and recyclable materials as a preliminary step to a horizontal and vertical expansion. In the short-term, permitted landfill capacity is projected to be totally used in 7-10 years depending on the quantity of incoming waste and the maintenance of recycling efforts. Additional permitting activities are underway for other areas within the Corral Farm complex. Recycling activity in the County continues to grow. Fauquier County’s recycling rate increased from 28% overall in 2007 to 31.4% in 2008. Fluctuations in the market for recycled materials are challenging. The downturn in the economy has reduced the market and price for mixed paper, scrap metal, aluminum and cardboard. Some markets have been stabilizing, albeit at a lower per ton price, during 2009. The continuing change in the market will require creative approaches to maintaining a successful recycling program. C. Service Areas The landfill site on Corral Farms serves the entire County. The current service areas for the convenience sites are shown on Map 7. Most of the sites are too small to service the growing population of the County. The burden is somewhat alleviated by the fact that most new subdivisions hire private trash haulers to handle their waste; however, that reduces the opportunity for a comprehensive recycling program. The New Baltimore site has been considered for closing or relocation as access to the site from Route 29 is problematic. The Catlett, Marshall and Markham sites are possibly too small and the facilities may need to be relocated to larger sites in the future as growth takes place.

D. Site Location and Suitability Standards Convenience Sites While smaller sites may be workable, three to four acres may be needed, depending on environmental and stormwater management needs, with a desired two usable acres for the convenience facility. The ideal site is a pipe-stem lot with convenient and safe access to a major collector road, but set so that the facility can be adequately screened from the road and its neighbors. New replacement sites should be as close as possible to current locations. New sites should be in proximity to population growth areas. E. Priority Needs Additional screening and buffering of the landfill site is needed along Route 29 as the landfill increases its size and expands into additional lands currently unutilized. This effort should be undertaken in the near term to provide the opportunity for the trees to grow and become more effective over time. As most of the convenience sites are too small and infrequently spaced for population growth, more detailed evaluation of the facilities is needed and an approach developed to target and plan for expanded facilities. Two possible long-term options have been identified, including relocation of current sites, starting with Marshall and New Baltimore, or consolidation of some sites.
