Bedford County Construction Debris

Construction waste as defined by Virginia’s Solid Waste Management Regulations means solid waste which is produced or generated during construction, remodeling or repair of pavements, houses, commercial buildings and other structures. Construction wastes include, but are not limited to lumber, wire, sheet-rock, shingles, glass, pipes, carpet and some metal and plastics. Charges for disposal are as described in the tipping fees.

Under the Virginia Solid Waste Management Regulations only rock, brick, block, dirt, broken concrete and road pavement may be buried provided that no open dump, hazard or public nuisance is created. (These materials may also be brought to the County Landfill at no charge).

No other construction debris can be buried.

Construction waste has to come to the Bedford County Landfill. It is not allowed to be disposed of in our collection system (County Ordinance, Section 16-13). Under the Virginia Waste Management Act and the Virginia Solid Waste Management Regulations construction and demolition waste cannot be burned. State law requires that all solid waste be disposed of at a permitted waste management facility, such as the Bedford County Landfill.
