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.

Loads more than 250 pounds will cost $27 a ton.
