NMDC's service area encompasses Aroostook, northern Washington, northern Piscataquis and northern Penobscot counties. The waste handling within these areas varies by location, services provided, end disposal etc. A number of the municipalities have joined forces in providing waste services and have created regional Solid Waste Management Associations (SWMAs).

Following is a listing of the SWMAs and their member municipalities. Also included are those towns within NMDC's service area that are currently independent of a SWMA.
