Send him a letter, sent some way or ways you can prove delivery (e.g. certified mail; fed ex with tracking; email or fax--it's best to use more than one way) which states that he has left his belongings in your home for 4 years; that he has no right to leave his belongings there; which briefly reiterates or summarizes your previous attempts to have him take this things; and which states that unless he picks the items up within 30 days, you will consider them abandoned and dispose of them as you see fit. Then send him a reminder, the same way (so you can prove delivery) at the 15-day mark. If he doesn't get his belongings, at the end of the time period, dispose of them.
