Bloomfield Health Department Staff Continues Canvassing Throughout Town to Educate Residents on Proper Garbage Disposal and Rodent Prevention

BLOOMFIELD, NJ -- In an effort to better address rodent control issues throughout town, the Bloomfield Health Department has been canvassing neighborhoods, performing an environmental assessment and investigating rodent control.

On Friday, Health Department staff canvassed the area near Lawrence St. and Hill St. Weather permitting, they will canvass Baldwin Place and Weaver Ave. on Wednesday September 25, and Newark Ave. and Berkeley Ave. between next Friday September 27 and Tuesday October 1.

“Rodent prevention begins with eliminating any potential food, water and harborage source for rodents, vermin and insects. Our dedicated staff has been going around all Bloomfield neighborhoods to educate residents, leaving door hangers with important information and looking for the potential cause of rodent population growth,” said Karen Lore, Director, Health & Welfare.

Initial canvassing began in May, when Health Department personnel visited the area of Washington St (from Bloomfield Ave to Ashland Ave) and side streets Farrand and Ward. In June, personnel canvassed the area of La France St (from Bloomfield Ave to Hoffman Blvd). In July, Franklin Street (Montgomery to Willet) and Halcyon Park. The Halcyon Park area is being canvassed and re-checked on a weekly basis.

 If you observe rodent activity on or around your property (rodent burrows, nests, droppings, teeth marks on wood or visible rodent activity, please contact the Bloomfield Health Department at 973-680-4024 and read public materials online at (
