Snow- and ice-packed dumpsters overflowing downtown

There are growing complaints about overflowing dumpsters in Omaha's Old Market. The narrow alleys there are already hard to maneuver while snow and ice have trash haulers backing off.

Days after it stopped snowing, the trash is piling up in an alley splitting two blocks in the heart of the Old Market.

His office above, Justice Decker can drive through the alley and though ice packed he wonders why trash trucks can’t get close enough to empty dumpsters.

”This is really terrible," Decker said. "Someone should be taking care of this right away.”

A block east, dumpsters for two restaurants and condos are buried by cardboard boxes with garbage mixed in. A bar manager claims the trash pile has been growing for two weeks.
