CVWMA board votes against East End Landfill expansion

The Central Virginia Waste Management Authority's board of directors voted unanimously today to deny a request to amend the Central Virginia Regional Waste Management Plan to allow expansion of the East End Landfill on Darbytown Road in the Varina District.

The CVWMA board represents 13 localities in the region. Landfill officials had sought to expand operations at the facility, which accepts construction and demolition debris.

At its Dec. 10 meeting last year, the Henrico County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to oppose amendment of the regional plan. Supervisor Tyrone E. Nelson, whose Varina District is home to the landfill, spoke on behalf of Henrico’s board at today’s CVWMA meeting.

Kindred spirits

Years after raising five children with her husband, Georgianna Faulk figured that her parenting days were over. But that changed when the couple gained custody of two of their grandsons nearly seven years ago.

Henrico to accept Christmas trees for recycling Dec. 26 to Jan. 12

The free service, which preserves landfill space and the environment, is available to Henrico residents only.

New stormwater regulations could prove costly

Changes to the way stormwater runoff is required to be mitigated from new development sites could cost developers, Henrico County – and ultimately property owners – more money, while forcing the county to end its successful watershed management program and environmental fund, which have been used to rehabilitate streams countywide since 2001.

Henrico and all state localities must amend their local codes by July 1 to reflect new stormwater quality standards adopted in 2011 by the Virginia Soil and Water Conservation Board and other new standards required by the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality and federal Environmental Protection Agency.

New ‘Va. is for Lovers’ plate unveiled

Governor Bob McDonnell recently unveiled the new “Virginia is for Lovers” license plate, which will become the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles’ (DMV) standard-issue plate beginning in March 2014.

“In 2007, we honored on Virginia plates the anniversary of the founding of America at Jamestown,” McDonnell said.
