It's the hot topic in Augusta: once a week trash pick-up. The change to the city's services has left many citizens heated, so this week we took the questions straight to the men in charge – Mayor Deke Copenhaver and Director of Environmental Services, Mark Johnson. They address why the change came to the service and how they are working on the kinks that came with the change. Also, if you've been fearful of recycling, they have made it easy for you, and there are perks to doing it!
Plus the mayor also takes on concerns about Riverwalk, children and animals left in hot cars, and what's on tap for the Patch.
