April 11, 2013

Elbert County’s solid waste fees will increase starting today.

The county’s blue trash bags are increasing to a cost of two dollars each, and the yellow bags will be one dollar each.

Also seeing an increase is the county’s tipping fee at the transfer station.

The new rate will be set at fifty-two dollars per ton, which is a four dollar per ton increase.

Those increases were approved during the February meeting of the Elbert County Board of Commissioners.
