The Hampton Roads Planning District Commission (HRPDC) is the Solid Waste Planning Agency for Southeastern Virginia. The Southeastern Virginia region includes the cities of Chesapeake, Franklin, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk and Virginia Beach, the counties of Isle of Wight and Southampton and the towns of Boykins, Branchville, Capron, Courtland, Ivor, Newsoms, Smithfield and Windsor.
State law requires that each city and county achieve an annual recycling rate of at least 25% and document the results through an annual report. Each city and county in the region has adopted an ordinance requiring the reporting of recycling information. As the Region’s Solid Waste Planning Agency, the HRPDC prepares the region’s annual report.
This year HRPDC has decided to streamline the Recycling Rate reporting process by converting the paper reporting form to a digital form. Also, in an effort to ensure that we are capturing data from all of the target audience, HRPDC has contracted with Christopher Newport University (CNU) to update and expand our Recycling Rate database. Consequently, over the next two weeks CNU will be contacting organizations throughout the region that generate or manage solid waste, and next month, the HRPDC will be sending out a Recycling Rate data request to those organizations. All recycling data must be submitted to HRPDC no later than March 31, 2015.
