The scoop on dog waste

Picking up after your pet is good for your yard and neighborhood. Collectively, improperly disposed (or forgotten) pet waste can have a lasting effect on the environment. The longer pet waste remains on the ground, the more contaminants will linger even after the waste is picked up. 

Dog owners and handlers can help by picking up dog waste right away and placing filled waste bags in garbage cans. Be prepared and keep waste bags on hand when you take a dog outside. A City ordinance calls for dog owners and handlers to clean up after their dogs from any sidewalk, street, park, school, public place or private property.
