The Northeast Maryland Waste Disposal Authority (NMWDA), in conjunction with the Frederick County Division of Utilities and Solid Waste Management and Carroll Country Department of Public Works, has selected Wheelabrator Technologies Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Waste Management Inc., as the preferred vendor to construct and operate a new, regional waste-to-energy facility that will serve the solid waste disposal and energy needs of Frederick and Carroll Counties.

"We believe Wheelabrator will help the counties move toward a more fully integrated waste disposal system that also includes the roll-out of a single-stream recycling program with an ambitious recycling goal of 60 percent." -- Robin Davidov, Executive Director, Northeast Maryland Waste Disposal Authority
