Close the Poop Loop

Close the Poop Loop!

Introducing Close the Poop Loop, the Goleta’s new pet waste campaign! Close the Poop Loop is a project created in collaboration with the Cities of Buellton, Carpinteria, Guadalupe, Lompoc, Santa Barbara, Santa Maria, Solvang and the County of Santa Barbara’s Project Clean Water.

As part of the campaign, we’re asking you to pledge to keep our community clean by picking up your dog’s waste and tossing it in the trash. Visit to take the pledge and you’ll receive a free bone-shaped keychain flashlight as a thank you!

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!) Learn more dog poop facts at

On the website, we’re also highlighting the “Top Dogs of Santa Barbara County,” whose owners keep our community clean by picking up after their pets and tossing the bag in the trash. To add your pooch, just send us a photo of your four-legged friend to

The Close the Poop Loop will run until April 2015. Visit today to take the pledge and claim your free bon-shaped keychain flashlight while supplies last!
