Certain residential properties contain so much junk they practically beg to be quarantined and their contents hauled off for disposal due to health concerns. Emily Crane of Daily Mail Australia writes about one such property in the greater Adelaide area that is in dire need of attention from a scrap metal pick up service. The owner has apparently dismissed concerns about the need to tidy his place up.
Crane writes that the Playford Council spent over $80,000 in legal fees since 2001 to force David Tavitian of Shaftesbury Road in Elizabeth Vale to clean up his yard. The situation took a turn for the worse in 2006, when an environmental compliance inspection yielded traces of rat faeces, an old refrigerator, and spent wheels.
