RE: [GreenYes] Landfill Tipping Fees
[sorry, report contains no financial information at all.]

Excerpt from Executive Summary, Solid Waste Managed in Virginia During
Calendar Year 2000 (June 2001, VA DEQ) 

One hundred and ninety (190) permitted facilities reported on their
activities for calendar year 2000.
Based on the information provided, a total of 21,796,507 tons of solid waste
were received at Virginia's permitted solid waste management facilities
during calendar year 2000.  Of this total, 17,324,961 tons originated in the
Commonwealth, and 4,471,546 tons originated in other jurisdictions.  

Municipal solid waste (MSW) constituted 14,552,489 tons of the total amount
of solid waste received during calendar year 2000.  Of the total MSW
received, 10,661,169 tons originated in the Commonwealth, and 3,891,320 tons
originated in other jurisdictions.  

Four jurisdictions accounted for over 95% of all waste received from
out-of-state sources:  Maryland; New York; Washington, D.C.; and North
Carolina.  

Of all solid waste managed in Virginia during the year, 80.71% was
landfilled, 14.23% was incinerated, and the rest was managed by other means.
The amount of solid waste disposed of (landfilled) in the Commonwealth
during the year was 14,801,832 tons.  Of all solid waste received at
Virginia facilities during the year, 66.77% was MSW, 16.54% was
construction/demolition/debris (CDD) waste, and the remainder was other
types of waste.

Because not all recycling facilities hold permits (and are not required to
supply information for this report), more accurate recycling information is
reported by localities.  According to voluntary recycling reports from
localities for calendar year 2000, the average state recycling rate was
approximately 29%.

WASTE NEWS -- 4/9/02
  Virginia proposes trash disposal fee to fund environmental programs

  RICHMOND, VA. (April 9) ¨ Virginia Gov. Mark R. Warner wants to impose a
$5-per-ton fee on trash deposited in Virginia landfills to fund open space
preservation, water quality improvement, recycling, solid waste management
and the cleanup and redevelopment of brownfields sites.
  The governor, speaking at an April 9 news conference, said his
conservation initiative would bring Virginia's policies more into line with
neighboring states and generate needed funds.

  ˘With the proceeds from these additional fees on trash disposal, we will
generate more than $75 million annually for the Commonwealth's critical
needs in open space preservation and water quality improvement,÷ Warner
said.

  Warner said his proposal is receiving support from members of both
political parties.

  The U.S. Supreme Court recently declined to hear an appeal of a lower
court ruling that a Virginia law banning out-of-state waste was
unconstitutional. Virginia is the second-largest importer of solid waste in
the country, behind Pennsylvania.

  The Pennsylvania Legislature is considering increasing its $3.25 tipping
fee by as much as $5, Warner said.
