CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) - Some residents of Clovis have been waiting since Dec. 22 to have their trash collected thanks to the blizzard that shut down the city at the end of the month.

The Clovis News Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1PpuIsP ) that Clovis’ Public Works Director Clint Bunch says 18 sanitation workers and 12 street department workers are making trash collection their top priority.

Bunch says his crew hasn’t had a day off since before the winter storm. He says about 85 percent of the city’s trash containers have been emptied since the storm and are on regular pickup schedules again.

But areas where crews can’t get to containers are still scattered throughout the city. Bunch says workers have been walking into alleys and scooping trash out by hand to give residents some space.
