Proposed New Mandate on Landfills

January 17, 2017

HB 1600 (Fariss) requires any active sanitary landfill that receives more than 100,000 tons of solid waste per year and is located within one-half mile of any residence or residentially zoned property to install a landfill gas collection and control system by July 1, 2019. The bill has been referred to the House Agriculture, Chesapeake and Natural Resources Committee.

VACo is very interested in knowing of any landfill managed by a county that might be affected by this requirement. Please send any responses to this inquiry to Larry Land at
