Compulsive hoarding (or pathological hoarding or disposophobia) is the excessive acquisition of possessions (and failure to use or discard them), even if the items are worthless, hazardous, or unsanitary. – Wikipedia
While it may not be clear whether compulsive hoarding is a condition in itself or a symptom of other related mental health disorders, it is apparent that the problem is more common that most would like to believe. The compulsive hoarding center estimates that as many as three million Americans suffer from some form of disposophobia.
Hoarders may be homeless persons occupying abandoned structures. Hoarders may be ill and physically incapable of caring for themselves.
There have been many instances where a site becomes so fouled by rotting food, human and animal feces, fungus, sick or dead animals that public health authorities are forced to take direct action. At the least, hoarding increases the risk for fire, unsanitary and unhealthful conditions that can lead to mold, rat and roach infestation.
