In our apt complex the dumpster is within approx 10 yds of the residences. The flys are intolerable. You cannot sit outside, you can't cook out, you cannot do normal outdoor activities because of the flys. When I contacted the owner, he laughed and said "Well, people have to throw their food somewhere, hahahaha". This is unacceptable. I went to the city of Gastonia and their answer was, "He probably falls under the grandfather clause". This is an unhealthy situation and I cannot find anyone to help.
