1. The county is hereby authorized to pledge to and agree with the holders of the bonds that the county will not limit or impair the rights hereby vested in the agency to purchase, construct, maintain, operate, repair, improve, increase, enlarge, extend, reconstruct, renovate, rehabilitate or dispose of any project, or any part or parts thereof, for which bonds of the agency shall have been issued, to establish and collect rates, rents, fees and other charges referred to in this title and to fulfill the terms of any agreements made with the holders of the bonds or with any public corporation or person with reference to such project or part thereof, or in any way impair the rights and remedies of the bondholders, until the bonds, together with interest thereon, with interest on any unpaid installments of interest and all costs and expenses in connection with any action or proceeding by or on behalf of the bondholders are fully met and discharged.
2. The county and one or more municipalities within the county, or the agency and the county, shall have power to contract from time to time between or among themselves, or among themselves and with the agency, in relation to the receiving, transporting, storage, processing or disposal of solid waste or for the purchase or use of any materials, energy, by-products or residue generated by or resulting from the operation of any solid waste management-resource recovery facility. Any such contract to which the county and any municipality within the county are parties may include provisions stipulating the maximum rates, rentals, fees and other charges to be collected for the use of facilities. Any contract to which the agency and the county are parties may include provisions (i) requiring the periodic delivery to the facilities of the agency of minimum amounts of solid waste and providing for specified minimum periodic payments whether or not such delivery is made, (ii) limiting the right of the agency to receive or to contract to receive, treat and dispose of solid waste originating outside the county, or (iii) requiring the county to pay, within appropriations available therefor, such amounts as shall be necessary to assure the continued operation and solvency of the agency, such payments to be determined and paid in such manner and at such times as may be provided in such contract. To further the governmental and public purposes of the agency including the implementation of any contract or proposed contract contemplated by this title, the county and all other municipalities within the county shall have power to adopt and amend local laws imposing appropriate and reasonable limitations on competition, including, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, as to the municipalities within the county local laws requiring that all solid waste generated or originating within their respective boundaries, subject to such exceptions as may be determined to be in the public interest, shall be delivered to a specified solid waste management-resource recovery facility; provided, however, that the county shall not be empowered under this section to adopt any such local law requiring the delivery of solid waste to a specified solid waste management-resource recovery facility. Any such local law shall be adopted in accordance with the procedure provided by the municipal home rule law, except that no such local law shall be subject to either mandatory or permissive referendum.
3. The county is hereby authorized to resell or otherwise dispose of all or any part of the materials, energy, by-products or residue purchased from the agency pursuant to subdivision two of this section. Any resale or other disposition may be made in such manner as the county may deem proper and upon such terms and conditions as may be agreed upon by the parties thereto.
4. The county and all other municipalities within the county shall have power to perform such other acts, to enter into such other contracts, including contracts between or among themselves, execute such instruments and to undertake such future proceedings as shall be determined necessary or desirable to effectuate the purposes of this title, including the making of gifts, grants, loans or contributions to the agency.
5. Any contract entered into by a municipality pursuant to this section may be for such term or duration, not to exceed twenty-five years, as may be agreed upon by the parties thereto, except that any contract relating to or affecting the security of any project financed in whole or in part by the agency may provide that the same shall remain in full force and effect so long as the bonds issued for such project shall remain outstanding or until adequate provision has been made for the payment or satisfaction thereof.
6. Any contract entered into pursuant to this section to which the agency shall be a party may be pledged by the agency as security for any issue of bonds, and may be assigned, in whole or in part, by the agency to any public corporation or person which shall construct, purchase, lease or otherwise acquire any solid waste management-resource recovery facility, or part thereof, financed in whole or in part by the agency.
