  • There is no real legal definition of abandonded, but almost anyone would give you permission to dump/sell/burn the stuff after storing it in your place for a year. Have at it.
  • Check with your local laws, but most states/cities consider it abandoned goods. If you have tried to make documented contact with them and they have not picked up their stuff you should be able to sell it or give it to a chairty. Document anything you do with the items.... item by item or groupings if you can just to CYA.
