WHEREAS: Unsecured restaurant trash bins can provide an ideal location for rats seeking food and shelter; and
    

WHEREAS:

It has come to the attention of the Council that while some restaurants and food stores separate food waste into secure bins or locations for composting, residents have expressed concerns that the restaurants that don't may be inadvertently providing attractive targets for rats; now therefore be it 
     

ORDERED:

That the City Manager be and hereby is requested to work with the appropriate departments to generate ideas and a plan of action to reinforce and secure restaurant bins in a way that separates food waste for composting and report back to the Cambridge City Council.
