UPDATE: The pile of garbage was removed Friday morning.
LAS VEGAS (KTNV) -- A Summerlin woman is considering all options when it comes to getting a pile of trash removed from the driveway across the street.
"This is a beautiful neighborhood, this is just making it look horrible," Natalie Bryant said.
Bryant is trying to find someone to clean up the mess she says has been sitting in front of the home near Lake Mead and Rampart Boulevards for four days.
"If you could smell it and see all the rats that have been running around out of it, I don't want to touch it," Bryant said.
She says the neighbors moved out over the weekend.
While most would call it a pile of junk, there were a number of items of value; at least until thursday’s storm.
"There is a lot of stuff that people just came by and took," Bryant said.
Bryant says she can't file a complaint with the HOA, because she doesn't own the home.
"Everybody that is upset about it, we rent, so can't legally complain," Bryant said.
That has her considering other options.
"We were going to go in together and try to offer them money to see if we can get Republic to take it away."
13 Action News reached out to the HOA late Thursday after the office was closed.
We will update the story once they respond.
