  • Rat Problem.  - These rodents have been seen and caught in several parts of Garnish.  Council has hired a pest control officer to remove them.  There are several things we all can do to decrease the possibility of these rodents in your neighbourhood.

1.   Place all garbage, particularly kitchen waste, in your Waste Management Green Tub.

2.  Pick up ALL of your dog doo where ever it gets dropped.  This includes the dog part.  That facility is not

intended for your dog to leave deposits.  (We know who you are).  Do show some consideration for

your dog-owner friends by keeping that ground free of your dog poo, which attracts rats.

3.  Do  not leave any pet food outside.

A more comprehensive list will be posted shortly.
