  • 77 Pine Street Swampscott, MA, 01907, USA - Swampscott
    Pine St. is experiencing a rodent problem. The rodents feed/thrive on poor trash management. Rodents are in and out of the trash at 77 Pine St all the time. This pic was taken on Thursday, by Monday (trash day), the trash bags will be all over the ground. The landlord of these units is not supplying his tenants with overflow bags, or the tenants are not purchasing them themselves. The overflow bags could be placed in the 'old' barrels (seen on the left of the pic), thus keeping all trash bags in barrels with lids and out of reach of the rodents. Something needs to be done about this, or we'll never reduce the rodent/disease threat on this street filled with children.

    There is illegally dumped trash at entrance to rail trail on Humphrey Street across from Phillips Avenue. Trash included these items asking with a lot of general litter: large, old television, oversized bean bag chair, and office desk. Can this trash be removed by the Town, please?
  • 1–21 The Greenway Swampscott MA 01907, United States - Swampscott

  • 35 Burpee Rd Swampscott MA 01907, United States - Swampscott
    This isn't quite a town trash/recycling issue but there is a tremendous amount of lunch trash from high school students at Jackson park.
  • 77 Pine St Swampscott, MA, 01907, USA - Swampscott

    Still no improvement at 77 Pine St. The trash bags have been sitting on the sidewalk/street since 7pm last night (and once again rodents/animals got into them).

    The maddening thing is the solution is right there in the rear of the photo. Could someone PLEASE stop by there (or get a hold of the property manager) and tell them to use the spare/old barrels to put the overflow bags in, instead of just placing garbage bags directly onto the ground.

    It is obvious the two floors of renters don't care about proper garbage disposal, or the fact they are contributing to the rodent problem on this street. Can the Health Department PLEASE step-in and enforce the City Ordnance on this issue.

    Thank you.

    To me it is unacceptable and unfair to have to buy the expensive blue trash bags when you are already paying these extremely high taxes. I have four teenagers and my husband and I living in the house. I cannot keep buying the blue trash bags. Please I would like an alternative solution for a family of 6. Thank you, Selene Noci.
  • 11 Phillips Avenue Swampscott, MA, 01907, USA - Swampscott
    At the intersection of Phillips Ave and Humphrey Street a large amount of garbage has been dumped.
  • 77 Pine Street Swampscott, Massachusetts, 01907 - Swampscott

    77 Pine St continues to contribute to the serious rodent infestation on Pine St. This pic was taken on Thursday (4 full days before garbage pick-up). Notice the rodents have already got into the black bag on the ground.

    Either the Swampscott's Health Department is unwilling or unable to get this residence to comply with the town's trash regulations, or the out-of-state owner and the two floors of tenants have told the town to go pound sand.

    Either way it's tax paying residents that suffer.
