Recycling reports due Feb. 16
© Culpeper TimesThe Prince William County Solid Waste Division has issued a reminder to businesses in the county that annual recycling reports are due soon.
Completed reports need to be filed with the Department of Public Works no later than Feb. 16.
The Prince William County Code requires all businesses and other non-residential properties that produce trash within the county to report on its activities each year.
Home-based businesses and businesses located within the incorporated towns of Dumfries, Haymarket, Occoquan or Quantico are exempt from filing this report.
This information is needed so the county can comply with the commonwealth’s annual recycling reporting requirements.
The report is completed on-line and can be found on the Prince William County website, pwcgov.org/businessrecycling or by emailing email@example.com for a direct link to the report.
In 2013 the county achieved a recycling rate of 40.5 percent. A 2013/2014 waste composition study conducted at the Prince William Landfill found that 70 percent of the waste items were actually recyclable resources.
