PBC Approves Plan to Bring in Other's Trash

Palm Beach County Commissioners have voted in favor of moving forward with a plan to allow other municipalities to ship their garbage into the county. 

The vote allows the Solid Waste Authority to contact other counties to see if there is an interest.  But opponents of the plan don't like the idea that outside municipalities would pay almost half of what those inside the county currently pay.

Local taxpayers would get back about $10 a year if the plan goes through. 

A study will be conducted over the next few months on the environmental effects such as traffic and possible pollution.  Another vote is coming in August.
