DEERFIELD – Two neighbors in one NH town are feuding over trash – not just any trash but everything from rotten food to dirty diapers, spewed across a lawn.
Jill Nickerson and her family loath looking at the pile of trash and say their home – and six acres of land – are lost.
Three years ago, Nickerson says a battle over property lines with neighbors Jennifer and Thomas Connor forced her to put a fence between them.
“They don’t care,” Nickerson said of her neighbor’s property where trash piles up. “They thought we did it out of spite, when in fact we did it for safety reasons and privacy.”
Nickerson said the trash started about a year ago and has only increased and includes bleach, oil jugs, rotten meats and food.
“It is piled up in length and then gets destroyed by animals,” Nickerson said. “Coyotes, turkey vultures, the bear, we don’t feel safe leaving our children outside.”
At one point, Nickerson said the neighbors even posted a sign asking for people’s garbage to be dumped on their property. Ironically, next to a sign that says “be kind to your neighbors.”
Nickerson decided to call the police and fire department after putting up with the trash.
How did the Connor’s react?
“I heard a gunshot again and a bigger explosion, and I saw 15 foot flames,” Nickerson said.
When NH1 News tried to talk to the Connors about the trash – they did not want to talk.
The property has multiple signs warning for unwanted outside visitors.
