    3441 W. Belle Plaine Chicago, IL - Chicago Ward 33
    This apartment building, which has at least 16 units, only has one garbage bin and it is frequently overflowing. Neighbors have seen rats in the alley, which we suspect may be due to this problem. In addition, the residents of this building don't have anywhere to put their recycling and the leave it next to the garbage cart. The building owner has been observed fly dumping his recycling into residential homeowners bins across the alley.

  • 760 West Wilson Avenue Chicago, Illinois - Chicago Ward 46
    Wilson viaduct overrun with rats as is the park area surrounding the viaduct. Rotten food and trash thrown in gutter and on sidewalk under the viaduct. Guess the donations outweigh the need so it just gets tossed out in the living area? No way to clean, since the area is full of tents, trash, and guarded by residents.

  • 4251 N Clarendon Chicago, Illinois - Chicago Ward 46
    The parkway of the school( South east corner of Clarendon and Junior ) has pounds of dog feces all along the parkway on the schools property. The school never cleans this area nor does it clean the hedges next to the playground . As a result we have a terrible sanitation and rodent problem. This is the same school that does no shovel the sidewalk that borders Junior Terrace. Why is the school exempt from city code?

  • 6972 N. Sheridan Chicago, IL - Chicago Ward 49
    Again, there are pieces of furniture littering the alley behind 6972 N. Sheridan Road. This is an ongoing issue. The dumpsters are constantly overflowing and there are rats everywhere. In addition, the building is infested with bedbugs and the building residents throw out furniture every week. This building needs to be inspected and taken care of.
