Across the United States, there has been an increased demand for municipalities to manage taxpayer’s funds and meet the citizens’ needs. This paper describes how a county in New York State effectively implemented a public-private interface model to outsource management of the county’s landfill to a private waste management corporation as a strategic initiative to control the municipality’s increasing tax rate and to enhance the county’s competitive environment. This initiative is expected to provide the county with a substantial positive cash flow from landfill operations as opposed to significant annual increases in operating losses.
