Pet Care

These three simple steps provide ways to reduce stormwater pollution that originates from pets, livestock, and wild animals.

Scoop The Poop, Then Trash It

PetWasteSignWhen you’re out on a walk, picking up after your pet is easy, if you’re prepared.

  • Carry a plastic bag with you on every walk. There are even compact, refillable bag dispensers (such as Bags on Board®) that you can attach directly to your dog’s leash.
  • Once you’ve collected your dog’s waste in the plastic bag, throw it in the trash, never into a storm drain!
  • Some parks and recreational areas have courtesy bags and disposal boxes, designed specifically for dog waste.
