Illegal Air BNB

I'm quite concerned about an Air BNB that is in my building. There are always strange characters coming in and out. Their "guests" smoke in the unit and throw their nasty cigarette butts out the back window into our parking lot. There has been a drastic increase in rats now because the "guests" leave their garbage outside the back door instead of taking it to the dumpster.

I'm quite concerned about an Air BNB that is in my building. There are always strange characters coming in and out. Their "guests" smoke in the unit and throw their nasty cigarette butts out the back window into our parking lot. There has been a drastic increase in rats now because the "guests" leave their garbage outside the back door instead of taking it to the dumpster.

I know there is a lawsuit right now with the owner and the condo association but I wonder if there is more I can do. I don't feel safe, and this owner doesn't seem to care about anyone else but himself and the $136 he charges per night in a building that does not allow this type of leasing of units. So yeah, any advice would be appreciated.
