Environmental Responsibility

Protecting the environment is an important part of our daily business. The Regional Landfill is an Exemplary Environmental Enterprise (E3), certified through the Virginia Environmental Excellence Program (VEEP). VEEP is a voluntary initiative for businesses in Virginia, administered by the VA Department of Environmental Quality that requires efforts above and beyond the applicable environmental regulations. The Regional Landfill achieved E2 status in 2004 and was recognized for E3 at the September 19, 2007 meeting of the R-Board.

In order to be accepted as exemplary environmental enterprise, a facility must have a good compliance history, a fully-implemented environmental management system and pollution prevention program in place with demonstrated performance. In addition to being good stewards of the environment, the R-Board benefits through a reduction in permit fees and more personal attention from the VA Department of Environmental Quality staff.
