ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Trash issues are making it a challenge for an Albuquerque shelter to keep pickup sites for homeless individuals and officials are looking to the city for help.

KOAT-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1KKZBW6) Joy Junction has had to stop using two sites due to the trash and mess left behind by some of the homeless individuals.

Group founder Jeremy Reynalds says this public issue can’t continue to be kicked down the road. Shelter officials planned to discuss options with city officials on Monday.

The Civic Plaza and downtown library have been suggested as possible alternatives.
