Notice of Class Action Settlement
Many of our commercial property owners have received mailed notices about a class action settlement that arises from the City of Atlanta’s practice of charging solid waste “frontage fees” to such properties on an annual basis even though the City did not collect their garbage or other waste. We encourage property owners to make claims for payments from the class action settlement fund.
The amount of settlement payments will depend on the total amount of claims made and may result in full or partial refunds for the period between 2014 and 2021. Beginning in 2019 the rates charged by the City increased, with charges to commercial properties ranging between at $500 to $12,000 each year, depending on their street frontage and location.
In order to determine the proper amount to claim and other information regarding the class action lawsuit and settlement, please go to the settlement website at https://www.coawastefeeclassaction.com/. That website contains further information about the settlement and how to make claims. Please pay particular attention to the Claim Form and the Claim Instructions on that website.
The deadline for submitting claims is March 11, 2022, so please act promptly.
