The Cambria County Solid Waste Authority, established in 1979 as an administrative arm of the County government, is responsible for implementing the County's Municipal Waste Management Plan. The County Commissioners authorized the organization of the Authority with the stated purpose of planning and regulating the storage, collection, transportation, processing and disposal of solid waste in Cambria County.

The Authority currently operates with 3 full-time office personnel, 1 part time office manager, and 3 full-time drivers, and is overseen by a 7-member Board of Directors.

Collections of material from 19 different sites as well as material at the office make for an ever-increasing recycling yield each year.
