Scoop the Poop!

Scooping your pooch's poop isn't just a courtesy to your neighbors, it's good for the environment!

Bring it

- Make sure you have a plastic bag with you on every walk.

Bag it

- Scoop the poop every time.

Trash it

- Dispose of pet waste in the trash or flush it (without the bag).

  • Dog feces contains more intestinal bacteria than humans, cows, and almost any wild animal.
  • Dog waste washes into storm drains and ditches.  From there it heads straight to your local stream, river, or beach.
  • The EPA reports that 2-3 days' worth of pet waste from just 100 dogs in a 20 square mile watershed can contribute enough bacteria to close a waterway to swimming and shell fishing. (US EPA, 1993)
