A neighbor tells PEOPLE, "the Houstons brought moving vans and filled up an entire dumpster with trash" about two months ago.

A source close to the family tells PEOPLE that the family, specifically Bobbi Kristina's uncles Gary and Ray, were spotted at the home this spring, moving items out, and cleaning and disposing of any junk left in the house.
