Code of Good Practice
All members of The Virginia Biosolids Council subscribe to a voluntary Code of Good Practice to provide guidance for recycling biosolids in Virginia.
The guidelines seek to capture current best practices by biosolids generators, land application companies and compost manufacturers and encourage them to go beyond the regulations” to build good relations with the communities they serve.
Each member has pledged to communicate the Code to its employees and strive to implement its principles throughout its operations.
The Code encourages members to establish their own performance objectives that support the following goals:
- Protecting the environment
- Minimizing adverse social impacts
- Promoting education and awareness
