On this note, home owners' associations get on my nerves. Feels like people wanting to have power trips over their neighbors, just be friendly and mind your own business.
I'm not sure if its illegal, but it is certainly unsanitary. Normally, I don't give a crap what my neighbors do but when it creates a rodent problem for the whole neighborhood that can easily be resolved, I feel like I have to say something.

If it was just one neighbor or even two homes doing it, I would just talk to them directly, but its literally over half the people on my block doing this, so going to the HOA is the best way to get the message out to everyone without singling anybody out.
I don't want to be that guy that nags at everyone, but if all you have to do is buy a trashcan to resolve the issue,
Also, our HOA isn't that bad. I got dinged a couple weeks ago to have my back fence fixed and they gave me until the first weekend of April to do it and told me "Thanks for telling us your situation, no rush to have it fixed, just keep us posted if you can't make that 1st weekend of April date". Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy. So if I tell them about my issue they'll make sure the message gets out to everyone and hopefully that will correct it.
Most people have already started putting rat poison traps around the homes, so if they're willing to do that, why not just get a damn trashcan to put your trash in?
