Litter Cans Filling Up with Household Trash, Residents Informed Trash Collection May Resume by Thursday
The practice of using public litter cans to dispose of household trash has become a serious problem in Park View – and one that has become even more of a problem with the recent blizzard. Residents are requested to refrain from placing household trash in open litter cans and to hold on to trash until service begins later this week and next. In addition of household trash in public litter cans being unsightly and illegal, a major concern is its impact on the public health and its contribution to the neighborhood’s rat problems as food in open containers often provides rats with food.
To assist residents with planning and managing their household trash until regular collections resume, below is the announcement from the Department of Public Works (DPW) issued on the 25th.
