Dougherty County - If you dump your trash at the Dougherty County landfill, you might have to start paying to unload. Now, County residents can dump up to 1-ton of trash a day for free. But, the landfill is losing a big customer, Hall-ing Refuse, and could go broke by 2009.

Monday, a consultant told county commissioners to consider charging individual customers and attracting out of town businesses. "There are prospective customers we've been keeping in touch with about bringing their waste to the Dougherty County landfill," said Solid Waste Director Michael McCoy.

The County also talked about giving some landfill employees early retirement to save money and asking the City to use the landfill for a cost. But the commission made no decision Monday.
