NYCHA residents say fellow tenants should be accountable for rat infestations

The city’s $32 million war on rats targets what it deems the most rat-infested areas — rat reservoirs — arming them with paved dirt floors, solar-powered trash compactors and a new trash pickup schedule that eliminates bags from sitting out overnight. Since none of the public housing complexes in Bronx 1 are considered rat reservoirs, their remediation is limited to education and recycling programs that some fear won’t solve the problem.
