The game now takes too much time...
I'm only playing this event for the Monorail. If it wasn't for that, I would probably give it up because it is getting a bit too time consuming for me.

Unless you're getting nothing but metal projects there's no reason to come on so often for the monorail. Push it to 3+ hours so you can collect and reset all 3 recycling plants at once.
House farm is your own problem so you can't really blame the game for that. Either be patient enough to build up money more gradually like most people or put up with clearing the house farm you built up.
You can slack off on visits a bit . Personally I only do mine as the last thing I do in the game for the day and I only do them until the game crashes/freezes when changing between towns.
What's the rush for SH? Its not going anywhere. Limit how much work you put in there each day or even skip it all together until the monorail is done.
Basically it all comes down to stop overloading yourself by trying to do everything at once. Just because so many different things are available doesn't mean you have to do them all right now. I'm somewhere in the upper 30's for my level with my story progress about 10 levels behind that. I'm working on my main town progress, building up Squidport, Krustyland, and Springfield Heights all while doing the monorail, but I'm doing it at a much more relaxed pace so it doesn't feel like work. Monorail is the only thing with a clock running so I put the most effort into that. I collect the recycling, turn in projects, and start collecting the next bunch of recycling every few hours or when ever I think of it when I have some downtime. I keep all my other townspeople on 4 hour or longer tasks and I use the time when I'm refilling the dump to collect and send them out again as well as collect the money from buildings. Main town and Squidport I just keep track of the cheapest building I need to build and if I hit that amount I start it and figure out the new cheapest one to save for. Short of character specific tasks Krustyland is done entirely with the tickets generated by the rides and NPC visitors. SH I do as much, or as little, as I feel like doing each day. Once the monorail event ends I'll go back to putting more effort into everything else until the Halloween event starts.
The 30 second pick up junk task doesn't seem so bad. I guess because once the dump is full it's full for at least an hour during the shortest duration recycling cycle and you can start everyone left that's not recycling on hour long tasks.
I always used the white houses for my house farms. You only need to tap them every 12 hours, and I built up quite a lot of cash. Maybe you just need to slow down, and smell the roses, or, you could always have a friend or family member do specific tasks while you're at work.
