Tenants irate at mounting piles of trash

Tenants of the Lambert Houses say mounds of garbage have piled up around the apartment complex, causing an unbearable stench.

Maintenance crews say they have nowhere else to stash the excess garbage, and tenants say the trash has been accumulating for months. Tenants complain the mounds of garbage are attracting rats as big as cats and inviting vermin to infest their apartments.

Tenants vow to keep drawing attention to the problem until the trash is cleared.
