While the blanket of snow caused by the snowpocalypse is a sight to behold, this winter wonderland has become a nuisance for the city as trash builds up, reports RÚV.

City Hall therefore asks all Reykjavík residents to shovel a path to their garbage cans, remove snow build up and double check that locks or doors to waste storage rooms haven’t frozen shut.

All available snowploughs are in use as the city works to clear the streets.

Garbage collectors were unable to finish their rounds in Vesturbær the day before last due to the hostile weather conditions but they hoped to finish there and cover the centre of town yesterday then move on to Laugardalur and Háaleiti today.

Do your civic duty! Free the cans!
