How often does my plan need to be updated?
The purpose of this letter is to certify that the key elements of the (SWPU)’s Solid Waste Management Plan (SWMP) are current in accordance with the Virginia Solid Waste Planning and Recycling Regulations, Amendment 2.
Under Guidance 04 2009, DEQ has outlined the information to be provided in the certification letter. Listed below are the items that must be addressed for the update as outline in the regulations and in the guidance document:
1. Waste generation estimates: The waste generation estimate must be current, both in quantities generated and composition.
2. Planning milestones: The scheduled 20-year planning milestones and increments must be discussed and indication provided on how the goals have been met or will be met in the future.
3. Capacity: The projected 20-year waste management capacity verified indicating that the required capacity remains available or that the projects designed to meet the required capacity are on schedule.
Most minor amendments do not require public participation action as regards to the plan modification, and do not require approval before implementation.
Note: some changes to the plan that are considered minor amendments may still require public participation due to the permitting process (example: Transfer Station).

A record of the public hearing, a copy of all written comments and the submitter's response to all comments received shall be submitted with the plan or plan amendment.
