LOADS OF LITTER: Trash Lines Main Street in Green Bay

Local News

As a garbage truck made its rounds through Green Bay, it hit a bit of a snag.
Shortly before 9am, the compactor opened up and let the litter fly.

“I look and I saw this garbage truck and I said, ‘Oh, my gosh,'” said Tina Jensen, who works downtown. “I said to my boss, ‘Look.’ And all the sudden this garbage truck had its doors open and the garbage was spewing out all over the road.”

“Labels and big rolls and everything,” said Lucas Lambert, another witness. “Cars were hitting them. He got lucky that nothing was damaged because there was a lot of big stuff.”

The majority of the heap was on Main and Roosevelt streets, and led to a temporary closure at the George Street intersection.

“I just couldn’t believe it was happening. I’m like, ‘What am I actually seeing? I can’t believe this is happening. It was crazy. It was just pouring out from the back of the truck.”

And the majority of the street was picked up after 30 minutes.
