Uncooperative Garbage Chute

Hlynur Hallgríms of Reykjavík, Iceland, tried to drop his garbage down the chute in his apartment building last night as a storm was passing through the city. The garbage chute declined to take it, or else someone was breaking the law of gravity. What weird pneumatic forces caused the floating trash bag? I have no answers, but there is plenty of speculation in the discussion at Metafilter.
