Lawsuit Seeks Rebates for Scranton Trash Fees
SCRANTON -- People who think they pay too much for trash pickup in Scranton could soon get some help. Thursday afternoon, lawyers filed a class-action suit against the city, claiming Scranton broke its own rules and jacked up its garbage collection fees to pay other city bills. According to the lawsuit, city law reads, "the fees cannot be used by the city for anything other than the costs directly associated with trash removal."
