The Agency is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of one director and one or more alternate directors elected by each member municipality. Each member has one vote when appropriate at Board meetings, regardless of whether both the director and any alternates are present. The Board of Directors establishes general policies of the Agency, makes all appropriations, approves contracts for solid waste disposal and all Project Use Agreements, adopts resolutions providing for the issuance of bonds or notes by the Agency, adopts by-laws, rules, and regulations, and exercises these powers and duties as outlined in the Agency By-Laws or the Agency Agreement.

The Executive Committee of the Agency consists of seven members of the Board of Directors. Executive Committee members are elected by the Board. Each member of the Executive Committee is entitled to one vote on the Committee. The Executive Committee may take any action not specifically reserved to the Board of Directors by the Solid Waste and Management Act, the Agency Agreement, or the By-Laws.
