TONY Pascale from PRD Nationwide in Liverpool is sick and tired of cleaning up after others.
He says a unit complex at Copeland Street has become a dumping ground for unwanted household waste and rubbish.
At first, Mr Pascale and the landlord thought the nine tenants of the building were the main culprits, but after months of investigations and costly removals, it appears others are involved.
"We don't know where the rubbish is coming from, but the items dumped are not from this building. We don't have those sorts of shutters or doors here," he said, referring to materials dumped recently.
"We think most of the rubbish isn't from the tenants. They all deny it and we can't accuse anyone."
The rubbish pile includes mattresses, carpet, electrical appliances, cupboards, lounge suites, bedroom doors, empty furniture boxes, toys and even car parts.
Mr Pascale said that after sending out several letters to tenants, the only solution was to install a 1.8 metre steel fence and surveillance cameras.
"We've had enough," he said.
Mr Pascale thinks there should be harsher penalties for those caught dumping rubbish.
Liverpool Council acting chief executive officer Julie Hately said residents could contact the council to book in for a household waste collection.
"If there is no booking made with council and no authorised collection sticker affixed to the waste pile then it is considered an illegal rubbish dump," she said.
"Under the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997, fines for 'deposit litter' are $200 (individual) and $400 (corporation)."
