OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - City crews spent the day at an Omaha park, cleaning up a giant mess that was scattered throughout the park.

KETV reports (https://bit.ly/1ijNL6Z ) that cups, plates, leftover food, raw meat and empty liquor bottles were among the items found Monday morning at Benson Park.

Omaha Parks and Recreation Director Brook Bench says it’s the worst littering he’s seen in 20 years spent working at the department.

Bench says there are 50 litter cans in the park and all were empty.

The mess was especially disheartening for city workers because it followed an effort to spruce up the park.

It took workers much of the day to pick up the trash and disinfect tables and grills that had been contaminated with raw meat.
