DENVER -- Recent winds have been strong enough to knock down telephone poles.

Trash from a nearby recycling plant is causing some issues along the Cherry Creek bike path.

After receiving complaints about paper and other materials in the trees and on the ground, the FOX31 Problem Solvers asked the city of Denver about the problem.

"There's a lot of litter around the city right now in general due to blown over trash/recycling bins," the city said in a statement. "Our crews are doing the best they can, monitoring and picking up litter daily along the trail and around our facilities.”

The city says crews are actively cleaning up blown-over trash and welcome anyone with concerns to call 311 to report a problem area.
