Landlord Fined for Permitting Food Trash Spillover
LVT Number: #30707
The DOHMH issued a violation notice to landlord for failing to manage waste to prevent pests. The inspector found uncovered garbage containers with food spillage outside. This would attract rodents. Landlord argued that it cleaned the trash disposal twice a day and that tenants placed garbage outside in between cleanings. The ALJ ruled against landlord and fined it $300.
