    Are barrels of leaves labeled as such still picked up or did something change? I put out a barrel of leaves today and it wasn't picked up. I can leave it out there if they can come back tomorrow...

    It appears an unintended/unforeseen consequence of Swampscott's new smaller trash barrel policy is the explosion of rodents on our street (and I assume other streets). A good 40% of residents on this street now put the overflow bags directly onto the sidewalk/street (much to the delight of the rodents).
    So, here's the very real problem (of a street full of kids and rodents that carry disease).
    What's the solution? Can the town mandate overflow bags be placed in barrels (with lids) that residents must provide? That would work, but unfortunately many have discarded the old barrels that were deemed 'too big.' Or does the town provide a second 'small' barrel and mandate overflow bags be placed in it?
    This is a health/disease issue that cannot be ignored; something needs to be decided/done before the rodent explosion in the spring. I was only able to upload one picture, however I counted six overflow bags that were placed directly onto the ground and were clearly enjoyed by rats (and that was only half of the street). Please don't ignore this in the hopes it just solves itself. The rodent infestation on this street and the danger it causes to our children is a direct result of the town's decision to implement the new smaller trash barrel policy and not plan for the second and third order effects of it.

    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.

    Suffolk Ave Swampscott, Massachusetts, 01907 - Swampscott
    It has been an ongoing issue with trash and recycling. They are leaving my barrels literally in the middle of the street and leaving my neighbors barrels in the middle of MY driveway where I have to move their barrels (multiple) so I can leave my driveway. This is every week and I see it happening to others on my street. Any help is appreciated.

    54 Foster Road Swampscott, Massachusetts, 01907 - Swampscott
    I am a neighbor of the property of 54 Foster Road.
    One photo depicts the backyard grass which hasn’t been cut in a year in a half.
    There are animals that have taken up residence in the overgrown grass and get into my yard at night.
    Last weekend my dog killed a rabbit that could have possibly come in from that property.
    The second picture depicts trash that has been left on the stoop for two and a half weeks.
    As you again can see animals have gotten into the trash and is of grave concern.
    Last week while cutting my lawn a wild Turkey was feeding off the trash and had to keep my head on a swivel for concern the turkey might attack.
    I would appreciate the matter being addressed.
    Thank you!

    The resident at 59 Franklin has disposed of an old carpet by leaving it on the parkway. It has been here rotting for about two months. Can we please advise the resident to take care of this?
