A Resolution to Abate Landfill Tipping Fees for the 2007 Fauquier County Fair

Topic Description:

The Fauquier County Fair Board, a non-profit organization, has requested an abatement of the landfill tipping fees associated with the disposal of refuse from the 2007 County Fair.

The Fair Board has worked with the County’s Environmental Services staff to reduce the amount of refuse generated at the County Fair being disposed of in the landfill.  In 2005, there were 4.91 tons of waste, and no recycling measures were taken.  In 2006, minimal recycling efforts were made, resulting in 6.18 tons of waste, and .51 tons of recycling materials.

In 2007, waste was reduced to 4.45 tons, and recycling was increased to 1.84 tons.

To minimize the expenses associated with the County Fair, their Board has requested abatement of $200.25 in landfill tipping fees for waste resulting from the Fair.


Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors: 

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.

Financial Impacts Analysis:


The requested abatement amount is $200.25.  It is proposed the General Fund reimburse the Environmental Services Fund in this amount.
