Maryland County Expected to Outsource Solid Waste Operations

Harford County, Md., is planning to outsource its remaining solid waste operations, according to a report from the Baltimore Sun.

According to the report: 

The Harford Waste Disposal Center, which includes a landfill, composting operations for yard waste and a collection center for recyclable refuse, is located off Scarboro Road in the Street area, about 10 miles north of Bel Air.

County Director of Administration Billy Boniface confirmed he will be meeting with the employees at the landfill, but said it "wouldn't be right" to comment on it until after he talked to the employees.

Details on the planned outsourcing could not be confirmed Tuesday night; however, a county spokesperson acknowledged earlier this year that the Maryland Environmental Service, a self-supporting, state government backed entity run by former Harford county executive Jim Harkins, had made a presentation to the county regarding solid waste operations.

The county is in the midst of a cost-cutting process. For example, it offered an early retirement incentive that 73 employees have accepted.
