Northeast Maryland Waste Disposal Authority

Frederick County became a member of the Northeast Maryland Waste Disposal Authority (“Authority”) in 2004. The Authority's mission is to plan and develop integrated solid waste management systems that meet the highest environmental standards while providing the most efficient and reliable waste disposal services possible.

The Authority assists with a variety of waste-related projects including recycling, resource recovery, composting, landfill gas-to-energy and solar, while at same time placing a special emphasis on waste reduction with an underlying goal to minimize waste disposal costs.
