Rubbish day at work! California garbage truck unloads mountain of waste on road

A garbage truck in Buena Park, California was spotted unloading a large amount of waste in the middle of traffic on Tuesday (April 30).

The video shows the back door of the vehicle slowly raise then pauses - revealing a large cargo of rubbish - before retracting fully and emptying the trash completely on the road.

The filmer said: "There's a dumpster next to our office and after he loaded it, he might have accidentally hit the wrong button/lever that opened the back.

"It was literally in the middle aisle of cars, which some definitely caught some debris.

"EDCO workers were freakin' out and they called about five more workers to help shovel up the mess.

"Took them about one hour to clean."
