Georgia landfill case ends 15 years after landfill closure

It sounds like an odd combination of land use. There is a blueberry farm, cattle and homes on the acres of land near where a Georgia landfill once operated. That variety of land use didn't go on without a battle, though it sounds as though the environmental lawsuit is over.

One county in Georgia wins fight against landfill plans

The community in which a person lives, where a person calls home, is worth protecting. For some, that might mean fighting crime. Maybe it means fighting higher taxes. For others, it means protecting the very land that their community is built upon. 

Georgia community rallies to oppose additional landfill

How many landfills near where you live are too many? That is the question being raised in an community in Gainesville, Georgia. Residents of an area that neighbors several existing landfills are banding together to stop the rezoning of a 51-acre property that would allow for the creation of a new landfill. The request to rezone the property--which the Hall County Commission is expected to approve--stems from a company that donated many thousands of dollars to Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal's 2010 gubernatorial campaign, according to a report in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. In addition, one of the landfills is owned by the governor's longtime business partner.
