Apartment Guru: Garbage out, Garbage Stench in


Dear Apartment Guru,

I moved into my place at the end of last summer and realized very quickly that the building's garbage, which coincidentally piles up outside my living room windows, is unbearably stinky. I spoke to the landlord and we walked the perimeter and figured out that there are apartment windows above every inch of the building. Since it was getting into autumn I let the whole thing go. But -- and I know you know where I'm going with this one -- summer's coming. I want to be able to open my windows and not get a whiff of rotting vegetables and pet waste. What do I do?
