Landfill Operator Fee Increase

Laurens County Council this week unanimously approved a first reading of an ordinance to provide for an increase in fees for private landfills. As part of their budget process, council voted to raise the host fee for these privately-owned landfills to $1 per ton. The fee was established as part of the county’s Solid Waste Plan, which is established in ordinance #425. The amended fee is to be authorized in ordinance #850.
