Shocking footage reveals inside of Lancashire hoarder’s filthy home where waste piled up the walls

Hoarder’s house of horrors crammed with ‘TEN TONS’ of trash: Eight-man cleaning team forced to wade through knee-high piles of garbage… from beer cans, bin bags to bottles of URINE

  • Hoarder’s two-bedroom Lancashire home was filled with ‘ten tonnes’ of waste 
  • Eight-man team of clearance experts waded through knee-high piles of rubbish 
  • House had been due to be sold but was in obvious need of major clean-up 

Shocking footage from insider a hoarder’s filthy home shows  ‘ten tonnes’ of waste covering the entire floor and piling up on the walls.

Clearance firm The Rubbish Removers shared clips of their eight-man team wading through knee-high piles of rubbish, discarded beer bottles and urine-filled containers at the two-bedroom Lancashire property.

The house, which a customer had inherited from a distant relative, was due to be sold, but would have faced a near-impossible market with some rooms filled to the ceiling with waste and crumbling walls.

Operations manager Richard Walsh, who was one of eight workers on site for the mammoth clear-up job, was left stunned by the sheer amount of discarded beer cans and wine bottles.

Despite being a relatively small  one-bathroom terraced house, the 31-year-old expert says that he and his team removed around ten tonnes of waste over the mammoth three-day job. 

Video from the clear-out shows mounds of waste covering the entire floor and piling up filthy walls – even swamping over an armchair and mattress in two of the rooms.

Mr Walsh said: ‘When we got up to the second floor, each bedroom was full to chest height with rubbish – beer bottles, beer cans, food, all sorts.

‘The entire floor, even the stairs, was full of rubbish. Then there was a third floor where the loft space was and that was absolutely floor to ceiling.

‘You had to duck down to get in the doorways because it was piled up so high. A lot of the bedrooms you couldn’t even get in them.

‘I believe it was one man that lived there that unfortunately was an alcoholic and over the years he had been accumulating waste and mess – all the beer cans and bottles.

‘A lot of the bottles had been filled up with urine as well so that was the big issue on the job that made it the hardest to deal with – that was the most shocking part.

‘Going off what we saw on the day I’d say it must have been building up for some years – maybe 10 to 15 years.

‘It was shocking and the smell was quite bad. That’s something we get used to but this one was particularly bad.’

It took eight clearance professionals three days to shift the mountain of rubbish by filling countless tarps and bin bags and loading them into vehicles.

The masses of cans and bottles were then taken to a recycling centre, leaving the house completely barren and revealing filthy, damaged walls and floors.

Richard admits that, though a relatively small property, the house was one of the toughest jobs they have tackled due to the sheer amount of waste packed into each room. 

‘When you’ve got ten years of rubbish piled on top of each other and you start disturbing the pile the food waste comes up, then the smell of the old beer, which obviously isn’t great and then the urine’, he said.

‘As we were moving it some of the bottles of urine started breaking and the smell was quite bad.

‘We probably moved between eight and ten tonnes of waste out of a two-bedroom terraced house, which is pretty substantial.

‘Usually if we’re moving that much waste you’d be moving out of a four or five-bedroom house.’

The clearance team hope to aid people in moving forward from difficult periods of their life with a compassionate helping hand.

Richard said: ‘It’s easy to go in there and think “how can someone live like this?” but people do so you have to be compassionate and non-judgemental.

‘Our teams are very good at that. We’re not there to judge anyone, we’re just there to do a job for them.

‘Whether they’re clearing it for themself or a family member it’s obviously a sensitive situation so that’s how we deal with it.’
