As a public corporation, the Northeast Maryland Waste Disposal Authority was established 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. The Authority also helps with facilities to generate energy from fuels that are derived from or are otherwise related to waste disposal. Participating jurisdictions now include Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Frederick, Harford, Howard and Montgomery counties, and Baltimore City (Chapter 163, Acts of 2004).
The Authority has nine members. Eight 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.
