The residence nicknamed “trash house” is located in the affluent Fairfax neighborhood – which has a median home price of $3.42 million – and has been the source of dozens of complaints for more than a decade.

Men dressed in white hazmat suits, masks and construction hats swarmed the property to remove mountains of white trash bags – while vermin hiding in the rotting debris quickly dispersed.

Mayor Karen Bass, Councilwoman Katy Yaroslavsky and Department of Public Works staff immediately initiated the search after a tour of the property this week.

Yaroslavsky revealed on Thursday that a ton of waste removed consisted of flammable and dangerous materials.

“I’m so worried about the man who lived in this situation,” Bass told reporters outside the home.

Until now, residents have complained about ditches of trash dumped in the driveway, invasive plants and, most pointedly, the disgusting odor wafting through their community.

“It’s getting worse and worse, and the smell has gotten really bad, and we’ve noticed more flies and bugs,” neighbor Rebecca Yale told ABC 7.

The Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety deemed the property an “imminent risk to public safety and health” around noon Wednesday.

After getting the go-ahead, a cavalry of city crews quickly began removing trash from the yard, although the same couldn’t be said for the home’s interior.

LAPD officers knocked, but the homeowner, identified as Raymond Gaon, according to public records, was nowhere to be found.

“I’m horrified to think about what’s going on inside that house,” Bass added.

Gaon, who has lived at the property since the mid-1990s, was ordered to remove the trash in 2014 and three years later the city filed two misdemeanor charges for non-compliance before the case was resolved. be classified in 2019.

She is now being offered mental health services as her well-being has become a priority in the community.

“Is anyone looking after him?” Because I’m worried about him,” Yale told the TV station.

“I assume there are mental health issues that have brought the house to this point.”

The neighbors suspect that Gaon lives in a camper around the corner from the house and simply uses it as a dumping ground for the items he collects.

His sister Leah revealed to ABC 7 that she bought the property for her brother and would like it back to fix it up.

“I can get it in good condition.”

She fears that without persistent care, the house is doomed to forever becoming her brother’s dumping ground.
