ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Less than a day after News 13 aired a story about a mountain of mattresses dumped in an Albuquerque alley, the city has cleaned up the mess.
People have been illegally dumping old mattresses and other trash in an alley on Girard between Coal and Lead.
George Schrieber showed News 13 the problem over the weekend.
He said it wasn't just an eyesore, but a safety issue and that fire and police units wouldn't be able to get through if there were an emergency.
Schreiber said he called the city to report the problem last month but nothing had been done about it until now.
City crews showed up Monday morning to remove the mess one mattress at a time.
The city says once they cleaned up the area, they found graffiti which will also be cleaned up.
