Controlling Dog Waste with Waste Stations

Controlling the amount of dog waste, particularly in city environments, is becoming an increasingly concerning issue. Pet waste has a variety of negative impacts on people and pets, soil and water supplies, and wildlife. The solution is simple, though often overlooked – pet waste stations. Establishing the stations isn’t just for placement in neighborhoods. They’re equally advantageous for public properties, walking trails, the beach, apartment complexes, hotels and other businesses. They can be installed outside or indoors. Two types are available. One dispenses bags only that are leak-proof and contain odors. The second is the ultimate in convenience. It dispenses collection bags and has a receptacle for disposing of them.

Pet Waste Etiquette

There are times when people legitimately forget a bag to collect their pet’s waste, but there are also those that are seriously misinformed about the damage it can cause or they just don’t care. Pet waste stations provide a constant, yet subtle reminder for people to pick up after their pets. It’s also an important enforcement tool for locations that have regulations for pet clean-up.

Installing Waste Stations

Installing the stations contributes to cleaner properties and environments. It improves property values and aids businesses in attracting responsible pet owners and desirable clients. The stations are especially beneficial for pet-friendly establishments and is an important resource for maintaining a healthy environment. A single pile of pet waste can take up to 12 months to fully decompose. During that time, it’s disseminated by insects, along with people, pets and wildlife that come in contact with it. Pet waste is not fertilizer and can contribute to extreme algae growth. When it rains, small amounts of waste are washed into waterways of every type and it has the potential to contaminate sources of drinking water. The waste can spread bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites to people, pets and wildlife. Locations like South Florida that receive a significant amount of rainfall are at increased risk of contamination.
