Trash Piling Up in Washington, D.C.—Rats!

Mar 2, 2015

Trash has not been picked up since February 6th in many D.C. neighborhoods. It is not only trash piling up in the alleys, on some streets and in people’s homes. It is also the critters that live off the garbage: Rats! Many rats.

What is D.C. Public Works’ response? “Again, we do recognize we are inconveniencing the residents when trash and recycling aren’t collected timely and hope that we have no more winter weather to impede our work.”

What?! Doesn’t winter, snow and ice come every year?

The two-legged rats that are making the decisions to not hire enough people and to not clear the alleys of snow and ice need gifts of garbage (which we have been accumulating) dumped in their front lawns!
