Dog waste is a huge problem for every City, Municipality and Public Entity. It's toxic, unhealthy, odorous and unsightly. It carries disease and contaminates the water supply. Unchecked, dog waste reflects on the City's image and reputation to both residents and visitors.
The issue for Cities is no longer one of awareness, but one of compliance. Customers tell us that when dog waste stations and dog waste bags are made available, dog owner compliance doubles!
Green-minded public spaces are those that provide dog waste stations, along with active enforcement of dog waste laws, to create the highest level of compliance and awareness.
Public Managers have discovered that providing dog waste stations and dog waste bags is cost effective, when compared to the expense of cleaning up dog waste and the time required to respond to resident complaints.
