They call him Garbage Guy and it’s not an endearing term.
The man lives surrounded by human waste he bottles and bags, and keeps them both in and outside his house.
He has shopping carts filled with waste and gargabe in his yard and when no one is looking he leaves the foul smelling collections around the neighborhood.
Folks in the Military Trail edition near Toronto say Garbage Guy has often threatened them by smearing feces on cars and garage doors and he often uses his own back yard as a toilet.
One of the more disgusting stories has to do with a neighbor who couldn’t take any more and “confronted him about pooping in his backyard,” pausing to add he had “his pants down to his ankles.”
The woman told the Toronto Sun the two were “screaming at each other. He raised his fist at me. I yelled, ‘hit me, you creep,’ but I made the mistake of telling him that as soon as he did, I’d have him arrested. “He calmed right down. Even asked me if I’d like a beer. I asked him how I’d be able to sell my home with all his garbage around. He told me as long as he pays the bills, he has every right to throw garbage around.”
She finished by uttering “he knows what he is doing.”
Police in the area say the man is “breaking bylaws but we don’t have the resources to assign an officer just to follow him around.”
A city councilor added “besides, it’s hard to deal with what is clearly a mental health issue by looking for bylaw infractions.”
