Cleaning my rubbish...

I always clean up and I've had three donuts so far and still have a lot of land to buy.

I wanted to keep some of the barrel type of debris for decoration outside my Duff Brewery but I can't seem to find a way of making Lisa or Homer clean up the other debris and leave the barrels alone. I even tried to hide them on an island in a lake but Lisa just walked over the water to the island and started cleaning them up :-o

You can't store the debris in your inventory so does anyone have a good tip for making any of the debris safe from being cleaned up?

    They clean the debris closest to them, so move the debris you want them to clean closer to them, and the stuff you want to keep, move to the other side of the map. :)

    I don't have a great method but also want two white barrels for the brewery. I tend to move them immediately after assigning the debris task to the opposite end of my Springfield so Homer and Lisa don't pick it up. It has worked thus far.
