Bristol Landfill

The landfill in Bristol has been a concern to residents for some time. The Virginia Department of Health has no regulatory authority over the landfill.  Landfills are regulated by the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ).

The Virginia Department of Health is partnering with the DEQ and the City of Bristol to coordinate and improve communications with affected residents and the community as a whole. As part of these efforts, we encourage those who are interested to visit the links below for more information:
