Drivers in downtown Soldotna should keep an eye out for efforts to clean up spilled garbage in the street Friday.
An Alaska Waste garbage truck spilled its load of trash around noon on Friday in the intersection of Binkley Street and Park Street, leaving a garbage pile in front of the Kenai Peninsula Borough’s George A. Navarre Borough Administration Building.
The truck appears to have been traveling south down Binkley and turning left on Park when the release occurred, leaving scattered garbage on Binkley and a large heap of it on the Park Street crosswalk, potentially blocking the east-bound lane.
The Soldotna Police Department is sending an officer to the scene. Alaska Waste didn’t have any information on the incident Friday but planned to investigate.
