Spring thaw reveals uncollected dog waste
With the spring thaw, piles of dog waste emerge. It’s annoying and messy but preventable.
Dog owners and handlers can make a difference. The remedy is to clean up dog waste in your yard and in parks or along trails as it accumulates. Make it a habit to pick up and properly dispose of poo from the pooch.
Place dog waste into a trash can, which will be emptied and its contents incinerated. Besides being the right thing to do for the environment and your neighborhood, 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.
