The Region 2000 Services Authority is comprised of the following four participating members: Appomattox County, Campbell County, Nelson County, and the City of Lynchburg. These four participating communities agreed collectively on how they plan to address their solid waste collection and disposal needs and the context in which solid waste management programs occur in the region. As of July 2008, these member communities coordinated their efforts that have resulted in greater cooperation, decreased costs of providing service to their customers, and better protection of human health and the environment.
Over the last seven years, quantities of solid waste disposed have dropped by about 6% and the cost to localities has increased by approximately 2.3% a year to $28.75 per ton. It is estimated that regionalizing solid waste disposal services has saved over $8 million in expenses, fees and cost avoidance for these jurisdictions in the form of low tipping fees and distribution of excess revenue. Additionally, the Region 2000 Services Authority continues an active recycling education program in Lynchburg and Campbell County.
