Dougherty County - People in Dougherty County can continue dumping trash at the county landfill for free. County commissioners voted against a dumping fee increase and agreed to allow residents to take up to 250 pounds of garbage to the landfill at no charge.
Commissioners feared a fee would lead to illegal dumping. "I think it will save a lot of problems in the unincorporated areas with people dropping trash of illegally, and Judy Bowles from Keep Albany Dougherty Beautiful agreed," said county commissioner Jack Stone.
