Solid waste and hazardous waste are regulated under a number of programs at the Department of Environmental Quality. These programs are designed to encourage the reuse and recycling of solid waste and to regulate the disposal and treatment of solid waste, including regulated medical waste, and to ensure that hazardous waste is properly managed. Standards are designed to protect human health and the environment and are driven by regulatory requirements.

The Virginia solid waste and hazardous waste programs are primarily implemented through DEQ’s regional offices, which provide primary review of solid waste permits and conduct inspection of solid waste management facilities. Regional offices conduct regular inspections of hazardous waste generators and hazardous waste management facilities. Permits for the hazardous waste program are issued through DEQ’s central office.
