Whose piece of land is the “stuff” actually occupying ? While she may have use of the road for entry and egress she can’t put her stuff on someone else’s property. Regardless of having a garage sale.
I would also find out if she has a license to have a garage sale as one is usually required

Yes, who's responsible for the road? The upkeep, shoveling, keeping holes filled? Who pays for anything needed for the road? If it's private, isn't is sort of co-owned/cared for by the neighbors? If so what percentage wins a vote? Can you get that majority to vote on the trash at the end of the road?

I will say people who like what looks like their trash to us, can love their stuff fiercely with not reason.

Neighbor across that street, good pal of mine, talked to that owner few times asking her to clean up the street. No response, she said "I'll be doing another g sale" and that's it.
They called sheriff office, deputy finally showed up, talked to owner, turned around and "advised" to "have this resolved with the neighbor".
When asked, if it will be Ok to bring pickup truck and just clean it themselves, he replied that it will be illegal and they can't do it.
Now my buddy is stuck with street that looks like dump and non responsive owner who simply ignores them.


Any functional suggestions? County and municipality will not get involved as "this is private road and civil matter".

They are trying to keep the street clean and plan on moving out and renting their mobile home. Of course, with street looking like that, renting becomes problematic. They do not have access blocked to their property, though neighbor once did put barricades across the street claiming it as "private proprty do not enter" but removed them when asked to do so.
LOL! This is the very problem so many here deny will happen when there is no HOA. Nothing that you can do about it.

Get pushy, and it will make it even worse.

Sell the rental property. Your likely hood of life getting any easier over the years next to a trailer park is zero. It will be one issue after another, forever......

Not in most areas, especially in rural areas.

Not having recourse with the County (zoning etc) is why HOA's come into existence.
No one with any sense would buy in these places otherwise.

Is the private road blocked enough that the fire department etc., cannot travel on the road?

Yes. I would pursue this angle, even going so far as to contact the owners' insurance companies and letting them know the local fire department does not have unimpeded access to the insureds' properties.
