When the city resumed trash pickup last week residents who share this alleyway between 28th and 29th streets assumed this garbage would be gone by the weekend, but it was still there Monday afternoon.
The Department of Sanitation is aware of the problem and says the alleyway is on a list of locations to be addressed.
The department also pointed out that garbage pickup in alleyways like these are suspended when there is snow and ice. They are not public thoroughfares, so they're not salted or plowed and that could make it dangerous for sanitation workers.
Residents are asked to put the trash in front of their homes during the snow season instead.
