As you know, the Village has experienced the same rat problem that faces so many Western New York communities. The Village has been working diligently with Erie County to address complaints. In order for any rat program to be effective, however, we need your help. You can help by eliminating food sources and shelter areas for rodents. The best way to eliminate food sources for rats is through the proper storage of your garbage.

Village law requires residents to utilize standardized, approved refuse carts. Garbage totes have been distributed to all residential and business properties.

Single family homes are required to have one tote, and doubles are required to have two.. The totes are 95 gallon totes and can hold the equivalent of approximately three garbage cans. The totes have wheels and handles for easy movement to and from the curb, and – most importantly – each tote has an attached lid. By simply closing the lid of these totes, we will significantly help our battle to rid the Village of rats. Not only will this food source be closed off to rodents and birds, it will also keep the trash dry which serves to reduce our costs in garbage collection and dumping.

Through the use of these totes we have seen a significant reduction in the presence of rats.

You can also help in ridding our community of rats through the elimination of bird feeders, by promptly picking up animal waste, and by removing wood piles and other shelter areas for rats. Working together we can make Kenmore safe and clean!
