    We have seen multiple rats running through the parking lot in the past few weeks.
  • 3050 N Lincoln Ave Chicago, IL, 60657, USA - Lake View

    Please see the photo taken this morning attached. The overfull dumpster had rat chewed open bags of what appears to be party food waste. There were rat droppings next to the dumpster that indicates that rats are feeding in the alley at 3050 N Lincoln Ave. A garbage bag was on top of the neighbors chained closed dumpster. There is a large piece of plywood behind the dumpster that has been there for many weeks.

    The neighbors from across the alley have posted a note about garbage on the back door of 3050 N Lincoln Ave.

    There have been small steps of improvement in the area for a few months. It is a step back to have more food available for rats to feed.

    The problem with an overfull dumpster at that location has become routine, esp. on weekends. It is good that dumpster service was increased. However, there continues to be a larger volume of garbage generated and not handled according to clear City sanitation ordinances. There needs to be more dumpsters added more frequent dumpster service to handle the volume of waste generated.

    All the neighbors are working towards sustainable rat abatement.
    The business at 3050 N Lincoln Ave is a party planner and party loft location. The owner is Debi Lily.
