When Indoor Waste Stations Should be Considered
Most people are surprised to learn that there are indoor pet waste stations. These types of stations don’t contain a receptacle for disposing of pet feces, but they do provide a source of bags for individuals to pick up after their dogs. The bags can be disposed of in any outdoor waste receptacle.
Indoor waste stations provide a clear and always present reminder that individuals must clean up after their canines. If anyone forgets a bag, the waste station provides a convenient source to obtain one. They’re gaining popularity with pet-friendly businesses ranging from hotels and apartment complexes to home rentals.
There were an estimated 89.7 million pet dogs in the U.S. in 2017 and the COVID-19 pandemic has increased that number, particularly in urban environments. Pet waste stations are appropriate anywhere that canines live. The bags are an indispensable element of maintaining a clean and hygienic environment.
There are multiple reasons why a pet waste station makes good sense. There are a number of vaccinations that dogs require, but there’s no guarantee that everyone is as stringent as they should be in keeping inoculations current. Dog feces that are left on the ground have the potential to spread diseases, illnesses and parasites to people, other pets, and wildlife.
Pet waste stations also help protect the environment. Dog feces take an average of 9 weeks to decompose. Diet and climate also affect the rate of decomposition. The feces are not a natural fertilizer and serve only to contaminate the soil. They’re also washed into water systems when it rains where they contaminate waterways. Dog feces contribute to algae blooms that are toxic to fish, wildlife and people.
Pet waste stations are an investment in the health and hygiene of businesses, people, other pets, and wildlife of all types. Place them next to entrances so if people forget a bag to pick up after their canine, they can just grab one on their way out.
