“The rats have joined the flies and birds over the 2 days this pile has been in our lives.”

trash pile
1605 New Jersey Ave, NW

“Dear PoPville,

Our neighbors moved out last week and left a glorious pile of junk, trash, and waste behind for us. The rats have joined the flies and birds over the 2 days this pile has been in our lives. The tenant committed to removing the garbage but he seems to be operating on a far different timescale than his former neighbors.

I’ve filed 311 complaints with Sanitation (for the junk) and Health (for the wildlife) but I am curious if there is a more immediate step I can take to get this pile removed or, at the very least, a citation of the tenant or landlord. If other folks have dealt with this, I’d love to hear how they handled things. Unfortunately I don’t have contact info for the tenant or the landlord.”
