Traffic was snarled for a bit near Stanton Park this morning when a Waste Management truck dumped a load of trash. The incident happened around 7:30 am, and was first reported by DC Fire and EMS as a trash truck fire. Steven Crowley was kind enough to send in a photo of the spill, which happened at the corner of 6th Street and Maryland Avenue NE.
As of 9:30 this morning, the clean-up effort continued, with 6th Street NE closed between Massachusetts and Maryland Avenues NE. Crews were seen hosing off the street and loading the spilled trash into a Waste Management dumpster.
