Beginner's Guide To Professional Dog Waste Management

Zero Waste USA offers the highest quality Dog Waste Stations designed to resolve resident complaints and maintain property cleanliness, at budget-friendly prices. As the #1 supplier in the USA, Zero Waste USA offers a wide variety of Dog Waste Stations and bag styles while having the lowest prices and free, same-day shipping on all orders. As the top supplier to municipalities, apartment communities, vet clinics, campgrounds, or any location that welcomes pets, we are committed to helping increase poop pick-up compliance to eliminate pet waste and create a clean environment for all.

Stations are available as The Sentry® Dog Waste Stations, Mini Dog Waste Stations (without a waste can), Low Profile Dog Waste Stations (without a sign), or Dog Waste Bag Dispensers only. Choosing which style depends on your location, and if other trash receptacles are nearby. You may choose a mini station or dispenser only, if you have limited space and have a trash can within a few feet to dispose of dog waste. If there is not a trash receptacle within a few feet, full stations, with trash cans included, are always recommended.

Our wide range of station styles include Roll, Header, Compostable, Tie Handle, Tissue-Style and more, catering to different property needs and budgets. Zero Waste USA's waste stations are made of durable, rust proof aluminum and include a ten-year warranty. Stations have a durable powder coating finish. Each station comes with a locking door, 2 keys, and post mounting hardware. Our rust proof, aluminum, powder-coated dog waste stations feature galvanized square posts for superior strength and durability. Text, on our dispensers, is screen printed for durability, not labelled. Stations are available in your color choice of Green (most popular) Black, or our new designer station series full of new colors and designs.

Location & Quantity Of Stations:

Installing dog waste stations requires consideration of various factors to ensure effective waste management and promote responsible pet ownership. Determining the number of dog waste stations needed on a property depends on several factors including the size of the property, the number of dogs and dog owners in the community, and the usage patterns of the area.

Condo/Apartment/HOA:

  • For condominiums, apartments, or HOA communities, it's recommended to install one dog waste station for every 50 units. Alternatively, if the units are clustered in groups of less than 50, place one station for each housing cluster.
  • Monitor usage regularly and install additional stations if waste cans are filling up or dispensers run low on bags more than once a week.

Parks:

  • In parks, place one dog waste station approximately every 500 feet. Regular monitoring of usage is essential, and additional stations should be installed if waste cans fill up or dispensers run low on bags more than once a week.
  • Following a "rule of thumb", provide one station for every 50 dogs passing by each day. For instance, a park frequented by 500 dogs daily would require 10 stations.
  • Cleaner parks tend to be more utilized by residents, leading to higher satisfaction levels with local government.

Dog Parks:

  • Dog parks, especially on weekends, experience high usage. It's advisable to have twice the number of dog waste stations compared to regular parks.
  • Ensure there's a station located immediately outside the dog park area, along with multiple stations inside the park.
  • Due to increased bag usage on weekends, plan for regular refilling of bag dispensers and waste can emptying throughout the weekend.

Walking Path/ Hiking Trails:

  • As a general guideline, it's recommended to install a dog waste station approximately every half-mile to one mile along the trail.
  • If the trail experiences heavy usage or if there are specific areas where dog activity is concentrated, additional stations may be necessary to accommodate the demand.
  • Entrances to the trail, near restroom facilities, and areas where maintenance staff regularly change waste cans are prime spots for installing stations.

How to Install a Dog Waste Station:

Installation InstructionsInstalling dog waste stations is a straightforward process that can be accomplished efficiently with the right tools, approach, and assistance. Whether you're a property manager, city official, or homeowner, here's what you need to know about installing these essential Dog Waste Stations:

Preparation

  • Before installation, carefully select the locations for the dog waste stations. Choose areas with high foot traffic frequented by dog owners.
  • Ensure that the chosen locations are easily accessible and visible to users while minimizing interference with pedestrian pathways or landscaping.

Tools & Equipment:

  • Gather the necessary tools and equipment for installation, including a shovel or post hole digger, concrete mix, level, measuring tape, and the dog waste station kit.

Three Installation Assistance Options:

  • Property Maintenance Personnel: Your regular maintenance crew can handle the installation process efficiently. They are familiar with the property layout and can ensure that the stations are installed in suitable locations.
  • Dog Waste Removal Services: Local dog waste removal services offer installation and maintenance services, including emptying trash bins and restocking waste dispenser bags weekly. These professionals have experience in installing dog waste stations and can ensure that they are set up correctly.
  • Independent Contractor: Any competent handyman or contractor can follow the easy installation directions provided with the dog waste stations. While this option may require additional coordination and supervision, it offers flexibility in scheduling and may be more cost-effective for smaller-scale installations.

Digging Holes:

  • Use the shovel to dig holes for the posts of the dog waste stations. The depth of the holes should correspond to the height of the posts and allow for property stability.

Installing Posts:

  • Place the posts into the dug holes, ensuring they are upright and level. Use a level to check for alignment and adjust the posts as needed.
  • Once properly positioned, fill the hole with concrete mix to ensure the post is in place. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for mixing and setting the concrete.

Attaching Components:

  • Once the concrete has set, attach the various components of the dog waste stations to the posts according to the provided instructions. This typically includes the waste bag dispenser, waste can, and instructional signage.

Testing and Inspection:

  • After installation, thoroughly inspect the dog waste stations to ensure they are securely attached and functioning correctly.
  • Test the operation of the waste bag dispenser and ensure that the waste can receptacle is securely fastened and accessible for pet waste disposal.

Maintenance:

  • Establish a regular maintenance schedule to inspect and clean the dog waste stations. This may involve emptying waste receptacles, restocking waste bags, and ensuring the signage remains visible and legible.
  • Address any damage to issues promptly to maintain the functionality and appearance of the stations.

Community Engagement:

  • Educate residents and users about the presence and purpose of dog waste stations. Provide clear instructions on their usage and the importance of responsible per waste disposal.
  • Encourage community involvement in maintaining the cleanliness and effectiveness of the stations by reporting any issues or concerns.

Monitoring and Feedback:

  • Monitor the usage and effectiveness of the dog waste stations over time. Solicit feedback from residents and users to identify any areas for improvement or additional installations.

How to Maintain a Dog Waste Station:

Ensuring the proper maintenance and upkeep of dog stations, dispensers, and waste cans is crucial to the effectiveness and longevity of dog waste programs. Timely maintenance promotes a clean environment and encourages responsible waste disposal habits. Dog Waste Stations should be checked and serviced at a minimum, weekly. Stations in common areas with higher usage may need a more regular service schedule, such as bi-weekly or every other day.

Property and park maintenance personnel play a key role in weekly servicing, ensuring cans are emptied and dispensers are restocked with dog bags promptly. HOA's can engage volunteers to help with station maintenance and refills.

Servicing dog waste stations is crucial for several reasons:

  • Hygiene and Cleanliness: Regular servicing ensures that waste cans and bag dispensers are emptied and restocked, preventing overflow, and maintaining a clean environment. This promotes hygiene and reduces the risk of unpleasant odors and unsightly waste buildup.
  • Preventing Contamination: Proper maintenance of waste stations helps prevent the spread of diseases and bacteria associated with pet waste. Timely removal of waste reduces the likelihood of contamination and minimizes health risks for both humans and animals.
  • Community Satisfaction: Well-maintained dog waste stations contribute to a positive community environment. Residents and visitors appreciate clean and functional amenities, which enhances overall satisfaction with the neighborhood or park.
  • Encouraging Responsible Pet Ownership: By providing accessible and well-serviced waste stations, property managers and HOAs encourage pet owners to responsibly dispose of their pets' waste.
  • Environmental Protection: Proper services of waste stations help prevent pet waste from contamination the surrounding environment, including water sources and green spaces. This protects local ecosystems and wildlife from the harmful effects of pollution.

Security & Vandalism Of Dog Waste Stations:

When installing Dog Waste Stations, prioritize prominent, well-lit and frequently visited areas to deter vandalism and ensure accessibility. Enhance visibility by considering the addition of solar-powered station lights to illuminate during evening hours, or in dimly lit areas. By strategically placing stations in highly visible locations, managers and community administrators can effectively discourage unwanted behavior while promoting responsible pet waste disposal practices.


Conclusion

Property managers play a crucial role in maintaining clean and welcoming outdoor spaces by installing and maintaining Dog Waste Stations. With strategic placement and proper maintenance, these stations promote cleanliness and responsible pet ownership, enhancing the overall appeal of properties and parks. By investing in quality Dog Waste Stations and partnering with a reliable supplier, properties can create a dog-friendly environment that meets the needs of residents and visitors.
