  • I would rather report them than confront them. Honestly, that's what the code enforcement gets paid to do, not just drive around and drink coffee all day (which is what ours does).

  • That would depend on how much junk. What is your city ordinance?

  • I would also report instead of confronting them. I feel mean saying I wouldn't want to tell them personally and give them the chance to fix it first, but I would worry about destroying a neighborly relationship if they didn't clean it up and the city then had to become involved...then they would KNOW it was me.

  • Nothing like "hoarders next door" huh ? I think I would report it. it won't do any harm and maybe it will give them some motive to clean it up.

  • is it hurting anyone besides their eyes? i keep my yard and house very nice for medical purposes, but you report them just be prepared if they backlash

  • I'd report it... I would be worried about rodents and mosquitoes.

  • I'd report to the town code enforcement officer.
