Waste System Authority
About the Authority
Montgomery County delegated the implementation of the Solid Waste Management Plan for the Eastern District to the Waste System Authority of Eastern Montgomery County. There are 22 participating municipalities represented by the authority that are obligated to make best efforts to deliver all municipal solid waste to the system. To facilitate delivery of the participating municipalities' municipal solid waste, the Waste System Authority provides two transfer stations located in Upper Dublin and Lower Merion townships. Ultimately, the municipal solid waste is delivered to a 1,200-ton-per-day waste-to-energy facility operated by Covanta Energy in Plymouth Township. Covanta Energy is a multinational corporation with operating subsidiaries throughout the world.
