Board of Commissioners to hold trash meeting

LAWRENCEVILLE -- Commissioners will hold a special meeting Tuesday to try to resolve a lawsuit over the county's trash services.

The meeting, where mediation with solid waste vendors will occur, was announced as part of a daylong sessions where regular business will occur.

The county is engaged in two lawsuits after a trash plan approved last year would have divided Gwinnett into districts where a single vendor would have been allowed to provide service to residents of the unincorporated area.

The plan was thrown out late last year, just days before it would have taken affect, and officials are engaged in a process to create a new plan.
