Article-Clayton County, Ga., Cuts Proposed Landfill Fee Hike

Clayton County, Ga., is backtracking on a large fee increase for its landfill in Lovejoy.

The Solid Waste Management Authority, which oversees the landfill, readjusted the prices Thursday for the landfill to $75 per ton over a ton and $40 for less than a ton of waste.
