Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on Arlington County’s Solid Waste Management Plan and Zero Waste Plan. The Solid Waste Management Plan (SWMP) is a state-mandated, 20-year planning document that serves as the County’s principal solid waste management planning framework. SWMPs are required to assess and plan for the reuse, recycling, and disposal of solid waste. Arlington’s plan will incorporate zero waste principles consistent with the County’s adopted target of at least 90% waste diversion from landfill or incineration by 2038.
This engagement closed December 1. Your feedback will help us determine if the voluntary initiatives to achieve the County’s zero waste goals are feasible, and if the intermediate waste diversion targets are achievable in the proposed time frames.
