Virginia Administrative Code
Title 9. Environment
Agency 20. Virginia Waste Management Board
Chapter 130. Solid Waste Planning and Recycling Regulations

9VAC20-130-110. Schedule for plan development.

A. Each solid waste planning unit in the Commonwealth shall develop and maintain a solid waste management plan or amend an existing solid waste management plan and submit it for approval in accordance with this chapter. Existing plans may be amended by addendum of items such as consideration of the waste management hierarchy, the recycling program implementation activities, and other requirements of this chapter that are not a part of the existing plan. Details concerning amendments to solid waste management plans are found in 9VAC20-130-175.

B. The department shall review and approve or return comments on the deficiencies in each plan submitted in accordance with subsection A of this section no later than 90 days from the date the plans are received. In the event the department is unable to complete its review within 90 days, the applicant will be notified and given a date as to when the review will be completed.

C. Each submitter who receives comments on its solid waste management plan under subsection B of this section shall submit a revised solid waste management plan to the department no later than 90 days following receipt of notification of deficiencies.

D. Plans approved without alteration shall become effective upon notification of such approval by the department. If after review of the corrected plan submitted pursuant to subsection C of this section, the department cannot approve the corrected solid waste management plan because the department finds the plan not to be in accordance with this chapter, it will issue a notice of intent to disapprove to the submitter. The notice of intent to disapprove shall set forth (i) the reason for the disapproval, (ii) what is required for approval, (iii) the right of the submitter to an informal fact-finding proceeding under Chapter 40 (§ 2.2-4000 et seq.) of Title 2.2 of the Code of Virginia, and (iv) allow the development of an action plan for the solid waste planning unit as set forth in 9VAC20-130-120 I. The department will give priority consideration for review of corrected plans where the solid waste planning unit has a pending permit application for a solid waste management facility.

E. The director may revoke the approval of any plan or require its revision and resubmittal if there is evidence that there has been significant deviation from the plan. Significant deviations are departures or omissions from activities planned in accordance with 9VAC20-130-120. The director will issue a notice of intent to revoke or require revision and resubmittal of a plan. The notice of intent shall set forth (i) whether the director intends to revoke or require revision and resubmittal of the plan, (ii) the reason the director intends to take the action, and (iii) the right of the submitter of the plan to an informal fact-finding proceeding under Chapter 40 (§ 2.2-4000 et seq.) of Title 2.2 of the Code of Virginia.
