Every year, DEQ publishes an annual summary recycling report that provides details on recycling conducted by each solid waste planning unit along with a state recycling rate calculation based on the data provided by these planning units. The required rate is 15%. Botetourt County is pleased to report that for Calendar Year 2022, the county had a 19.7% recycling rate! Since 2019, we have seen a 24% increase in community recycling.
Virginia’s recycling rate sits at approximately 43%, so we still have some work to do!
