No one can predict where their canine will decide to relieve themselves and dogs tend to defecate in the same places – even if that happens to be a neighbor’s yard. It can add up to a particularly noxious problem if it’s not immediately cleaned up. Neighborhood pet stations help keep yards clean, aid in preventing soil and waterway contamination, and the spread of disease and parasites.
A neighborhood pet station provides the means and motivation for residents to easily and cleanly dispose of pet waste. An estimated 67 percent of households in the U.S. have at least one dog, many of which live in large cities. Unfortunately, city planners often overlook the need for a pet waste disposal plan. Pet stations are an effective solution that alleviates the unforeseen problem.
Pet waste stations are available that provide a bag dispenser and a receptacle in which to dispose of it. Units are also offered that provide bags only or receptacles only to best meet the needs of individual communities.
Even if an individual forgets to grab a pet waste bag before they walk their dog or unintentionally run out of bags, a pet waste station always ensures there’s a convenient waste bag and disposal unit available.
The units help keep pet waste under control and subtly encourages residents to comply with ordinances. They also demonstrate to community members that their government entity cares about their health while bringing social pressure to bear as a motivational tool.
Pet waste stations can be placed anywhere desired, but careful consideration should be utilized as to placement. They’ll need to be convenient for dog walkers and along routes that are most frequented by individuals and their canines. However, the placement should also offer the lowest impact on the community. They’re best erected away from schools, playgrounds, businesses, or in direct line of sight of homes.
