A tale of clearing unwanted debris (or how to be too clever - Doh!)

When did they change it so you can't move characters on outside tasks attached to a decorations? I use to just move the piece of trash they were cleaning up to make sure they didn't clean up any of my nuclear waste near my power plant.

    No idea but I tried to move Mindy when she was working on her tan the other day and it would only let me select her (the store option) and I couldn't select the tree Lisa was reading under when she had finished her task. I could select everything around her but not the tree itself

    Next, while she's cleaning the piece of debris, don't collect her reward. Instead, go to the move screen, turn off characters and buildings and turn on items, then move the piece of debris she's cleaning to your unwanted to debris pile. It will move her there, too.

    It'll work if you turn off character select. Otherwise, by default, it will keep trying to select the character.
