Businesses in Prince William County are reminded to complete and file an annual recycling report with the Department of Public Works by February 16.

Section 22-169 of the Prince William County Code requires all businesses and other non-residential properties that produce trash within the county to report on its activities by February 15th of each year for the previous calendar year. Home-based businesses and businesses located within the incorporated towns of Dumfries, Haymarket, Occoquan, or Quantico are exempt from filing this report.

This information is requested each year so that Prince William County can comply with the Commonwealth’s annual recycling reporting requirements. The report is completed on-line. It should only take about 10 minutes and should be completed by the person most familiar with trash and recycling services for the property. The report may be accessed via the Prince William County website, or you may send an email to and you will receive a direct link to the report.

For Calendar Year 2013 (the most recent year for which data is available), the County achieved a recycling rate of 40.5%. A 2013/2014 waste composition study conducted at the Prince William Landfill found that 70% of the waste items were actually recyclable resources. The Solid Waste Division encourages businesses and residents to Reduce, Reuse, Recycle waste appropriately to help conserve natural resources and landfill capacity for future generations.
