Hoarding,  the compulsive purchasing, searching and saving of items that have little or no value, can threaten the health and safety of those living in or near the home of a hoarder.  Compulsive hoarding is defined by three main features:

  • The accumulation and failure to discard a large number of objects that seem to be useless or of limited value;
  • Extensive clutter in living spaces that prevents the effective use of the spaces;
  • Impairment of basic living activities.

If you suspect a hoarding situation in your neighborhood please contact:
