Crin, I visited several neighbourhoods now and you are right - the pile in the DSV starter area is still there, but for me it is the only one. All the notorious places in BB, Newcrest, WC, Oasis Springs and Vampire World are clean at the moment.
This still looks fixed in my game. I'm playing in autumn in Willow Creek and all leaf piles in the public space burn completely at the first try.

Still have same problem too, My household set on Willow Creek Around area of Mysterious Tree, An Ashes Around Mysterious Tree Can't Clean, It will be great if DEV. add Delete Object Command In Cheat Command same the sims 3 I don't know why they not do IT!.
Only thing can do for emergency fix by player is" Set As head" a trash can on sim head and walk nearby Ashes and choose clean/put away. But this way fix can make other Bug. Because If have emergency resetsim by auto system you trash can on head will drop from head to ground and if drop out from house lot It can't delete. If have anyone say you can use command set as head again to fix it. I can told you no I tries you can't if you use set as head again on bug object it not move that object to you head again but this command will be dupilcated that object to you head
It is not mod related. I have never modded my game and I have non-removable smelly leaf piles everywhere outside my home lot.
Piles of leaves on my lot I can burn and get rid of, but leaf piles out in the world never leave. They just get worse. Massive amounts of stink and bugs.
I have removed all mods and tried to get rid of them, but they never burn away.
I actually provided a feature suggestion in regards to this a ways back; here's a link to it:
- Leaf Piles should no longer become stuck in neighborhoods.
Fixed in Patch 1.49.65
