Did you know that dog waste is a significant contributor to bacterial pollution in our beaches and bays? Dog waste that is washed into creeks, rivers and the storm drain system introduces bacteria into our region's waterways, resulting in those menacing "Beach Closed" signs you may have seen at your favorite beach.
Be sure to pick up your dog's waste in a bag and dispose of it properly in the trash! Better yet, consider using 100% biodegradable dog waste bags, because the plastic in conventional bags can take hundreds of years to break down in our landfills. 100% biodegradable dog waste bags meet rigid specifications in all 50 states, which require the material to degrade at the same rate as an apple without leaving any remaining plastic fragments behind.
