[ARCHIVED] Be a Good Neighbor and Scoop the Poop!

Puppy dog

The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, spring is in the air. You are enjoying an ideal afternoon walk... right up until you step into a pile of dog waste that someone has left on the sidewalk. This is just one of the reasons that it is important for pet owners to clean up after their dogs.

Here are some others to consider:

  • Pet waste contains twice as much bacteria as human waste.
  • Pet waste can kill grass and other plants if left in someone's yard.
  • When pet waste washes into storm drains and waterways, it can make the water unhealthy for people and wildlife.
  • Pet waste that enters the waterways through storm drains and sewage can even cause algae to grow, making the water turn an unpleasant green color.

Cleaning up after your dog is not only common courtesy but makes a safer community for you, your neighbors and your pets.
