NH1 Investigates Trash Wars: Crews clean up Deerfield trash pile

DEERFIELD – In a story you only saw on NH1 News, trash wars has finally come to an end.

“I’ve been praying for this day for a long time,” said Jill Nickerson, who can now take a deep breath of fresh air.

For two years, the Nickerson’s have been begging and pleading for their town leaders of Deerfield to help them get rid of a massive, dirty and dangerous garbage site that lines their property.

“I’ve done everything in my power to try to do my job, and it’s in the police hands and the town’s hands,” said Fire Chief Mark Tibbetts.

After NH1 Investigated the trash situation, Selectman Richard Pitman got on the case and arranged for a full crew to come to Jennifer Connor’s house and clean up the trash.

On Wednesday, after a long argument with local officials, crews arrived on the property at 6 a.m. and the Nickerson’s wish finally came true.

But the Connor’s were not budging.

“They would not come to the door, they were in the house, they ignored us. We had the paperwork to serve them and they just ignored us and let the dog bark,” said Nickerson.
