Nuisance property in Port Richmond has neighbors complaining once again

    Residents in Port Richmond have a growing problem: an accumulation of trash in the rear of a neighbor’s property.


    The story that aired on Fox 29 stated that the woman who owns the property collected the garbage. And though dumpsters had apparently been brought in to clear out the waste in the past, its back.

    Neighbors say they’ve called officials on multiple occasions to complain not just of the smell, but also of the fire hazard the trash pile poses.
