The owners may or may not come back for some of it, and if other people cart some away for their own use, that works as well. When it happened on my street, the family only had what appeared to be 24 or 36 hours to collect it all. It IS indeed a mess, but the city will come through with police and a trash truck to pick it all up, and they are fairly thorough. The family is entitled to some time to collect the stuff. You sadly have to live with it for a very short time…a day or two. I am not being unsympathetic to your plight here because I was just as upset when they dumped the contents of the family’s Refrigerator in front of my house (we had a massive cloud of flies for days). However, once its over, just trash whatever is left and I guess thank your stars it wasn’t you.
