Janice Shanks carried two bags of refuse into Portsmouth Mayor David Malone's office in Ohio.

Ms Shanks said she had more rubbish than normal because of a holiday family get-together, and the lack of collection put her in "a real pickle".

Mr Malone accepted the refuse and said he will take it to the city's waste disposal department.

Mr Malone said certain routes were skipped so the city could avoid paying overtime for the holiday work. He said there was confusion over how notice was sent out to residents.
