Largo, Florida - "Paper, pieces of furniture- just garbage," Don Delaney ticks off items he sees in a trash pile in his neighborhood. It's not what he likes to see when he drives down Bradford St.
"Well, it's terrible," he says. "You get people coming to see you and visit, and they turn in and the first thing they see is a landfill."
And Delaney says the pile present for the last few days is a small one. Sometimes it's much worse. "I don't know how he gets away with it," he says shaking his head.
Delaney and others who live in the neighborhood say the piles of debris have long been a problem. They've seen strangers pick through the trash looking for anything valuable, and one time, they say the pile was even set on fire.
"It's a health hazard," says Carol Fines. "They clean it up and two weeks later it's back again. It's been an ongoing thing for the last two years."
The house at the address is a rental property owned by Gary and Barbara Buffington and managed by Buffington Properties.
Complaining neighbors say the property owners' son, Tait Lundquist, hauls in junk from other rental properties and dumps it on the Bradford curb.
"He has a trailer that he pulls in the back of his truck and he pulls up and leaves it for us to look at," says Brian Stopford, who rents at the address.
While 10 News was out taking video of the trash, a man who wouldn't identify himself, started taking video of us. "We're just wondering why you're so interested?" 10 News asked.
"I saw a news van," he replied.
Later, neighbors and city officials identified that man as Tait Lundquist.
An inspector from Largo code enforcement also turned up while 10 News was at the property. He also took photographs of the trash and issued a violation.
Neighbors say they've called the city of Largo, Pinellas County and even the police about the situation without results, so that's why they contacted 10 News.
Largo Community Development Department Director Carol Stricklin says the property is a repeat offender, and has an outstanding $1,400 fine for a similar trash violation in December 2010.
"We are concerned about a neighborhood's quality of life and when we hear of a violation, our goal is compliance," says Stricklin.
And even though residents expressed frustration with the city's response, Stricklin encouraged them to keep calling in complaints.
After completing our interview with Stricklin, 10 News once again encountered Lundquist in the lobby of city hall. This time he told us he was the property manager. He denied any debris was hauled in from other properties, and he blamed the piles of trash on Tropical Storm Debby and on his tenants.
"What can you tell the neighbors who live on the street-is it going to get better?" we questioned.
"I don't see that it's bad," Lundquist replied. "I would say to talk to the tenants, the people who live on the property- they're the ones that are causing the defect."
When 10 News returned to the property, all the trash that was there had been hauled away.
Neighborhood residents can only hope it stays that way, but they say in the past, such hopes have been trashed.
