Neighborhoods are often plagued by a few inconsiderate dog owners that have multiple excuses for not cleaning up after their canine. Even if no amount of shaming notices or fines alter their behavior, installing a pet waste station will encourage other residents to clean up after their dog.
Pet waste stations
are available as stand-alone waste receptacles and models that also dispense bags with which to pick up the waste. The poo bags have a light lemony scent, are leak proof to eliminate odors, and provide an environmentally friendly way to protect lawns and waterways from contamination.
Feces don’t break down easily and when it rains, they’re washed into waterways. Dog feces contaminate the water, can cause severe algae blooms, and introduce other contaminants into the water. On land, feces can contain parasites, bacteria, viruses and fungi that are spread throughout the environment via contact by people, pets and wildlife. It affects water quality and can lead to restrictions and boil-water alerts.
Pet waste stations should be an integral part of any community’s waste management plan. Waste stations provide the means to pick up pet waste and dispose of it responsibly. It encourages neighborhood dog owners to do their part to keep the area clean and aids in improving compliance with local regulations. The stations have the added advantage of creating subtle social pressure on individuals to comply.
Municipalities should consider the density of canines in any given area when planning where to establish the waste stations. They provide an ideal solution in neighborhoods, parks and trails, and dog parks, just to name a few. They’re equally beneficial at housing complexes, condos and businesses. They’re especially handy anywhere there’s a green space. Pet waste stations provide a comprehensive solution to the problem of pet waste.
