Lee County Landfill Won't Get Atlanta Trash
By Alabama Public Radio
Opelika, AL – A plan to expand the use of a landfill in Lee County has been rejected. The expansion would have allowed the landfill to accept a thousand additional tons of trash from metro-Atlanta and other parts of Georgia. Waste Away, a subsidiary of Waste Management, would have paid the county 75-cents a ton. But the Lee County Commission voted 5-0 against the plan. Atlanta officials had already decided not to consider Waste Away to handle the removal of metro-Atlanta trash.
