Northeast Raleigh residents say litter is a problem in the neighborhood. We found mattresses, box springs, furniture, and other garbage piled up. And, that was not on trash day. The clutter has some residents furious.

"I think it's ridiculous. I don't know why they would litter our neighborhoods like that causing it to be bad for other people to live," said Altheia Henderson.

The area is on Green Road and along Hargrove between Green Rd. and Millbrook.

City officials say there's a solution. You can contact the City of Raleigh Special Bulk Pickup:
