Tossing out junk at the county’s highway facility will soon no longer be free.
By a 5-2 vote, the Anderson County Fiscal Court approved last Tuesday charging 5 cents per pound ($100 a ton) for items thrown into its compactor. That includes throwing away yard debris as well as regular household trash.
Disposal of recyclables will remain free.
The decision includes purchasing a set of scales for around $55,000, along with hiring a full-time employee at an estimated $30,000 a year to collect fees.
