Prince George's Residents Get Chance to Review Once-a-Week Trash Pickup

Prince George's County, Maryland, residents have a chance to let the county know what they think of once a week trash pickup.

The county switched from twice a week pickup last year.

Since then, there have been numerous complaints about trash not being picked up and delays in getting the new trash cans.

The service reduction reportedly saved the county $6 million and increased recycling.

Councilman Mel Franklin is conducting a 45-day online survey to gauge whether residents approve of the change and to guide future decisions on the policy.
