Picking Up After your Pet

Compliments of Councillor Jaye Robinson

Residents are expressing concerns about improper disposal of dog waste.  The following is a brief review of Solid Waste Management’s recommendations for disposing of dog waste properly.

  • DO:  Take a baggie with you to pick up dog waste.
  • DO NOT: Throw dog waste baggies into bushes or trees, as plastic bags containing dog waste do not break down.
  • DO:  dispose of dog waste in your personal green bins.
  • DO NOT:  Leave dog waste on your neighbour’s property or in your neighbour’s garbage bins or yard waste bags.

Help keep our Neighbourhood clean and safe for all to enjoy!
