Return duct "boot or no boot"

Since it's dirty enough to shake off clumps of dirt already, I'd make sure the rest of the trash is out of the return ducting and then just buy a new one. Why didn't the installing company clean the trash out first?

thnx! not sure why he didn't. i will no for next time to ask this valuable question.

once again thank you all for taking the time to answer my qs. have a great day.

thnx again for taking the time to offer your opinion on this matter.

That is a 45* duct not a clod air boot.

Just slow, not stupid.
