The Northeast Maryland Waste Disposal Authority was established as a public corporation in 1980 (Chapter 871, Acts of 1980). By coordinating efforts and finding financing, it assists participating local governments in Maryland, other public entities, and the private sector in providing adequate waste disposal facilities. Participating jurisdictions include Anne Arundel County, Baltimore City, Baltimore County, Carroll County, Harford County, Howard County, and Montgomery County. The Authority also helps with facilities to generate energy from fuels that are derived from or are otherwise related to waste disposal.
The Authority has eight members. Seven are appointed by the Governor to four-year terms. One serves ex officio. With the approval of the Governor, the Authority appoints the Executive Director (Code Natural Resources Article, secs. 3-901 through 3-929). Basically self-supporting, the Authority receives minor appropriations from participating local governments, but no State funds.
