Solid waste management districts. Establishes the procedure for a county that withdraws from a solid waste management district to join or establish another district. Requires the adoption of two identical ordinances at a designated interval for a county to withdraw from a district or for a district to remove a county. Eliminates the requirement for disclosure: (1) by a county of the reasons for withdrawal from a joint district; and (2) by a joint district for removal of a county. Establishes the effective date of a withdrawal or removal of a county from a district. Requires a report on the existing legal obligations at the time of withdrawal or removal and establishes the responsibility for those obligations after withdrawal. Permits use by the joint district and the withdrawn or removed county of the existing district plan for not more than one year after withdrawal. Provides that the law as it exists before the amendments under this act continues to apply with respect to pending withdrawals and removals unless an election is made before May 1, 2002, to apply the law as amended by this act. Repeals provisions that: (1) require action by a joint district board to allow withdrawal by a county; and (2) void the withdrawal process if all necessary actions are not taken within one year.
