I'm in Concord, NC [ Cabarrus County ]. I've got horrible unpleasant odor coming from my neighbor's yard.
It is their dog's fecal matter inside large trash can. They don't empty out trash can weekly but they do empty out in a month or two.

What can I do?

I don't like to be a nasty neighbor but it is getting out of hand.

Help.

Talk to them and let them know what there doing is most umpleasant, if they don't take care of the problem, call the Police non-emergency # and have them investigate it. They will probably appreciate the fact that you brought it to there attention directly as opposed to just calling the police. Good Luck!

I'd get that situation straightened out before the summer, for sure. Check with the County code enforcement. There may be an ordinance against creating such a nuisance. But remember ... you are in the south, and folks are fierce about their "property rights".

Oh yeah, I have to get this straighten out ASAP.
We had warm weather within past 4 days. I can smell that _________.

I can't fathom the idea of smelling that pile of ____________ [ you know what ] during summer time.

You can call the City and ask to speak to someone in zoning or code compliance. I would bet that there are City ordinances restricting storage of items that are considered to obnoxious or unsafe.

This would also be a health violation and your neighbors could be subject to fines.

If you live in a neighborhood that has a homeowners association you should contact the association and file a complaint. Most home owner associations have similar restrictions about items that are considered obnoxious or offensive in nature.

Most complainants to the city can ask to remain anonymous and you should be able to do the same with the association.

If all less fails contact the health department directly and put your complaint in writing. Copy the city manager and the Mayor. You will get a response from them.
