Trash litters Fort Gordon Gate 2 at Robinson Avenue.

WHAT: Four miles of trash strewn along the median and eastbound shoulder that motorists and residents say make the area surrounding Fort Gordon’s gates look “very shabby.”

WHO’S RESPONSIBLE: Augusta Environmental Services handles cleanup

ACTION PROMISED: Deputy Environmental Services Director Lori Videtto said she would issue a work order in hopes of getting the litter cleared next week. Videtto said her department has three inmate crews and internal staff that work litter collection twice a week. “Now that most of our work crews are done with storm debris cleanup, I can go ahead and reallocate some staff to litter collection,” she said.
