BIG SPRING - It will now cost more to dump your trash at the Big Spring landfill.

After some heated debate, the City Council approved raising the rate from $5 to $10 a day for residential users.

The Mayor was the only one who voted against it. He wanted the rate to be $10 per visit.

They are running out of space at the city landfill and need to expand.

They've asked the county to help but so far they do not have an agreement.
