Contractors have removed more rubbish from the front yard of a hoarder's Windred Street home after Orange City Council ordered a clean-up.
Police attended the site when the clean-up was conducted last week.
Council spokesman Nick Redmond said the council had an ongoing legal order which allowed it to enter the property and remove rubbish when it was deemed the site posed environmental or safety concerns.
He said food scraps and rubbish were taken away from the premises in a five hour operation.
"Half a dozen ute loads of rubbish were removed," he said.
Mr Redmond said the clean-up was conducted after council officers had monitored the situation and received complaints from neighbours about the smell and the amount of rubbish in the front yard.
Council has been seeking to clean the property for about 20 years.
"It's a difficult situation. That's a pretty significant power that we have," he said.
"We can't use the order for untidiness."
He said they did not remove car bodies from the front yard.
Mr Redmond said the cost of the clean-up was added to the rates to be paid by the property owner.
If the accounts are not paid the debts can be listed against the title of the property so the council would be paid when the property was eventually sold.
The homeowner, Sophie Kjoller, lives on the property.
A previous clean up was conducted in June 2018 where police also attended to ensure the clean-up was conducted without any breach of the peace.
At that time Ms Kjoller told the Central Western Daily she had been living at the property for nearly 50 years.
However, the house on the property cannot be accessed due to damage caused by a fire in March 2016.
A car was first spotted on fire in the front yard before it spread to the garage.
The house received smoke damage and the blaze was extinguished in two hours.
