The Toccoa Record reports that Joe Wilbanks, the majority owner of Wilbros Organic Recovery in Toccoa, Georgia will be going to court later this month in Stephens County on nuisance code violations. The Independent Mail states that county officials are urging the community to support their efforts, including supporting local group Concerned Citizens of Toccoa-Stephens County in their efforts to abate the odor. The court action, and the action of Concerned Citizens of Toccoa-Stephens County are regulatory in nature, and does not compensate citizens for the nuisance they have experienced.

While I do not currently represent anyone in Georgia, I have a national practice and represent hundreds of similarly situated people around the country, including the east coast, in various landfill and environmental litigation. To find out if The Simon Law Firm can help with a landfill or environmental lawsuit, contact environmental attorney Todd Hageman.
