The photos show the horrific litter left in a house that was only occupied until just a week before the removers were put in for cleaning.
The eliminators had to delve into “waist high” levels of garbage – including bottles full of urine and rat nests – as they sorted out the mess.
The cleaning took four men a total of seven hours to complete. When everything was rounded up, three industrial-sized trucks filled the trash.
Eliminators described the Bury home as “the worst thing they’ve ever dealt with” in the five years since they started their company.
Warren Senior, owner of Senior Waste Removals, went to the home in Woolmersley to assess the situation before bringing in his crack cleaning team.
He said Manchester Evening News : “It’s the worst house we’ve ever seen in five years of doing it and we’ve done some bad work.
“I got a call from the private owner, they wanted me to come down and have a look to get an idea of the cost of removing the waste. They just told me it was” very bad. “
But even the veteran professional was shocked at how bad things were when he couldn’t get in due to a torrent of trash blocking the door.
“I struggled to open the door because all the food wrappers, rubbish, and flies came out. I can tell from that moment on that it was going to be bad,” Warren said.
“I have a very strong stomach and I have never wanted to get a job and raise their prices, but it took me five minutes to prepare myself and get in.
The front door opened to the kitchen and waist height was full of trash, all appliances were completely covered.
“I went into the hallway and found a set of stairs, I had to climb into the front room which was covered in flies.
“The main room had sofas but it was in a state and on the left there was a bathroom but it was a mess too.
“I had to climb up piles of trash to get to the bedroom.”
What’s even more shocking for Warren is that someone was living in that house just a week before he arrived – which raised concerns about his mental health.
Warren added, “Someone was already living in this property a week ago, and someone was already living in it.
There were bottles of urine around the place he just left there.
“Also strange is that when I went up to the third floor, I opened a door and there was nothing at all. Just an empty room.
“They might not be able to move much and live on one floor. There are clearly some mental health issues at play.”
Soon after, Warren’s team of four crammed into the house wearing specialized suits and masks.
When they began their mission, they made another disgusting discovery.
“The boys got into the kitchen and started moving things,” said Warren.
“They discovered a nest of about 20 mice. Fortunately, my companions are accustomed to it, we are working with Bury and Bolton Council on jobs and dealing with a lot of mice.
“It was a bagging job. It took an entire day: four men, seven hours, three trucks. That’s too much for us.
“They just used it as one giant coin.”
The business costs six times the average job cost of a removal firm – running into the thousands due to the sheer volume of litter.
When the team left, the house was a shell compared to when they arrived.
“We’re changing the identity of the house,” Warren said.
“We are lifting everything, including the floor coverings. Now the property owner is ready to make any changes that need to be made so that someone else can move.”
