Close the Poop Loop!

Close the Poop Loop is a county-wide pet waste campaign encouraging the community to clean up after their pet. It is important to pick up after your dog’s waste AND place it into a trash can. Please do not drop full bags onto the ground along paths and walkways. Bags are even provided for your convenience. Pet waste presents a serious problem in our City and County. It’s one of the largest sources of water pollution. (Just one gram of dog waste contains millions of bacteria!) The US EPA even classifies dog waste as a dangerous pollutant, in the same category as toxic chemicals and oil. Click here for more facts on the hazards of dog poop.
