When I grew up, dogs ran free and no one ever thought about picking up dog poop. Today things are different – we have leash laws and people walk their dogs. America has approximately 71 million dogs that produce 29,000 tons of waste each day. Leaving pet waste on the lawn or near the curb can be a major source of harmful bacteria and excess nutrients that wash into the storm drain and eventually into local waterways. It’s very important to pick up the poop.
What then, is the most eco-conscious way to dispose of all that poop?
