LOWNDES COUNTY, GA (WALB) - In just two weeks, people in Lowndes County will need to purchase a solid waste permit to use the county's waste sites.

The new rule takes effect July 1st.  The permit will cost $100,and will be good for a year.

Permits will be required for household and yard waste, along with recyclables, at the county's six collection sites.  The revenue will help expand the new Solid Waste Management Plan.  

"Single stream recycling is the biggest component of the new program," says Lowndes County Clerk Paige Dukes.  "Recycling is very important. It's very important to our community that we reduce our waste here, that we do recycle.  Single stream means that you can throw all recyclables into one bin in your home, and throw them into one bin at the center. We're very excited about this part of our program."

Permits may be purchased by citizens in unincorporated Lowndes County, along with those living in city limits.
