CLEAN UP AFTER YOUR PET!

Many Municipalities and public agencies must enact and enforce local pet-waste rules. An example is requiring pet owners or their keepers to pick up and properly dispose of pet waste dropped on public or other peoples property.

Make sure you know your town's requirements for waste removal and comply with them. It's the law. Please remember to: use newspaper, bags or pooper-scoopers to pick-up wastes. Dispose of the wrapped pet waste in the trash or unwrapped in a toilet. NEVER discard pet waste in a storm drains.

Thank you for your cooperation!
