If things go like they have in the past they can give the homeowner the bill. It just won't get paid.

Ok it was quite a cluster but you have to give him a little credit for winning so many battles with City Hall even if their attack when he was absent cost him the war, or at least some of his treasures. I understood that in his opinion he had complied with the court ordered % not cluttered. Perhaps if he'd been there he could have salvaged the most valuable items or chosen the area to be cleared at his expense (cost goes on his tax bill)

Trust me... the stuff that went into the garbage truck was exactly that garbage. It has been sitting in the elements for a long time... the boxes and containers had water that smelled really bad in them... nothing worth salvaging..

Decoration is one thing but that yard resembled a toxic waste dump.
