(415 ILCS 10/4)
(from Ch. 85, par. 5904)
A unit of local government may enter into intergovernmental
agreements to prepare and implement solid waste management plans, and may
adopt those procedures for the preparation and implementation of plans
the contracting parties deem appropriate. A unit of local government may
delegate any power to another unit of local government for the specific
purpose of preparing and implementing a solid waste management plan.
However, no plan prepared pursuant to an intergovernmental agreement under
the authority of this Section shall provide for the siting of a new pollution control facility within the incorporated area of any
municipality or the unincorporated area of any county which is not a
signatory to the agreement without the consent of the municipality or county.
It is the intent of the General Assembly that any action taken pursuant
to this Act by one or more units of local government, acting individually
or jointly, shall be deemed to be State action for purposes of the
application of federal antitrust law, and no such action shall be
prohibited by virtue of any anticompetitive effect it may produce.
