(WASHINGTON, DC) – On Monday, November 13, at 3 pm, Mayor Muriel Bowser will be joined by community members to highlight the Administration’s comprehensive approach to rodent control. As part of her #BacktoBasicsDC effort, Mayor Bowser announced new tactics aimed at decreasing the rodent population in Washington, DC, including solar trash cans; smart litter bins; and the Waste Compactor Grant Program – which will allow up to 60 local businesses to buy or lease trash compactors for bulk trash, waste, and recyclables. Mayor Bowser also highlighted Text to 311 (DC311), an accessible way for DC residents to request rat abatement services via text message. These initiatives contribute to the Administration's efforts to keep the city clean and support public health for all residents.
