Huge, stinky piles of garbage in alleys today

WTF Albuquerque?

Walking to work today, I noticed a pile of trash outside of its dumpster. Then another, and another. Most of the errant piles o’ crap were in the alley that runs East/West between Central and Gold. But the mother load, the oops-the-garbage-truck-malfunctioned-and-dumped-contents-everywhere cake-taker, is behind our office, in the alley I like to affectionately refer to as Kimo Way.

The smell is like, well, like a waist-high pile of garbage that’s out of its plastic bags and lying in the June sun.

What is going on here?! Who did this? HOW? And, who is going to clean it up?

SPECIAL UPDATE!

We now have an answer to at least one of these pressing questions. Two intrepid workers from the city are shoveling up the mess right now. Thanks to these two nameless heroes who apparently drew the short straws in today’s messy event.
