JOHNS CREEK, Ga. (AP) - City officials in an Atlanta suburb say they’ll relocate a dumpster used for discarding roadkill after complaints of dead-animal smells wafting from the receptacle.

WSB-TV reports (https://2wsb.tv/2a0cswj) that the dumpster is on city-owned property behind some businesses at a main intersection in Johns Creek.

Business owner Tony Maurlanda says the smell can be overwhelming, especially on hot days.

Johns Creek city spokesman Doug Nurse says the dumpster, used to dump road debris including dead animals, will be moved to a site near a water reclamation area.

Johns Creek, a city of about 85,000 residents in Atlanta’s fast-growing northern suburbs, is about 25 miles northeast of the city.
