The Value of AEA in Every Type of Membership

AEA has three classes of members: Regular or authority members, municipal members, and associate members. Any organization that does business within the publicly owned water, wastewater, solid waste and recycling agency sector has a place at the AEA table. Our unique focus is the management, administrative and policy development aspects of public utility service.

Toilets are not Trash Cans. AEA echoes the message of the National Association of Clean Water Agencies, reminding New Jersey that ALL wipes should be thrown into the trash –NEVER flushed down the toilet. This is especially important during the current pandemic. Check out our video.
