Charlotte, NC - Neighbors joined in to help clean up trash in an elderly woman's backyard along Irwin Creek in Charlotte.
The homeowner tells us she called 311 to report it to the city, but she was told that she had to clean up the mess because it was on her property.
If she didn't she would get a bill from the city. Old TV's, microwaves, and even crutches were left in her backyard.
Sold waste services put a dumpster near the site for neighbors to use during the clean-up.
City officials tell us homeowners are responsible for their property no matter what.
