This was why I was so glad when the welfare family behind me finally moved out after five years! Now I have a nice neighbour who is fixing up the house they nearly demolished.

Yes, it can be the people, but also it’s the cost. The dump I’m expected to patronize charges $50.00 to accept one trash load in a small pickup with a 6 foot bed. And there’s a long list of stuff they will not accept. If you don’t have a pickup, add to this the cost of hiring one and paying a driver for the long journey to the dump, plus separate stops at other places to leave stuff like glass, plastics, cardboard, electronics, mattresses, oil, paint, medications, etc. etc.

Not easy if a family is living on minimum wages or welfare. Now that I think of it, just not easy, period.

Uggggg!!! Hoarders!!! Nasty!!! If I get out to an HVAC call and it's a hoarder or smell like cigarettes so bad I can smell it outside I won't do the call. I'm self employed so I can do that. And even when I worked for other people if I called up and told them it was that bad they usually wouldn't make me do the call either. Unhealthy environment..... Period.
