A team of professional cleaners and TV producers descended on Greenport last October to help a local woman manage her compulsive hoarding habit as part of a popular television show.

The episode of “Hoarders,” a documentary series on A&E that highlights the struggles of people who cannot part with their belongings and helps to find them treatment,  aired last week. It was filmed on Carpenter Street.

Part of the episode features a woman from Oklahoma. The local story begins at the seven-minute mark of the episode.
