Rat infestation is a huge problem in the Bronx. With rats come many harmful diseases that can injure people severely. Littering and improper waste disposal are the main issues that attract rats to buildings. These issues are caused greatly by public housing projects, which have a very loose enforcement of laws. This allows for people to dispose of trash incorrectly without repercussions(leaving trash in hallways, throwing trash out the windows, littering, etc.). The NYCHA is responsible for this loose enforcement of proper waste disposal. I have experienced firsthand the effects of NYCHA's disregard for stricter rule enforcement in my neighborhood. My backyard is right next to a public housing building, and on numerous occasions I have seen people throw trash out of their windows and into my family's property. This attracts rats that destroy our garden, hide in our cars, and may even carry diseases. In order to combat rat infestation, something has to be done about the NYCHA’s rules. The purpose of this petition is to show to the NYCHA that the people are unhappy with their enforcement of waste disposal. The people want the rules to be stricter so that trash is not just left on the streets for rats. Proper trash bins and dumpsters should be put in place as well by the government so that trash can be protected from pests. In order for communities to combat rat infestation, we all have to band together and bring this to the attention of the government. STAND UP against littering and rat attraction.
