I have NO idea what forum this should be part of . . .

We have a big dog poop problem in our neighborhood. People just do not pick up after their dogs. The street adjacent to ours has more poop than grass. It's terrible!

I am wondering how those pet waste stations appear in neighborhoods. Is there a particular section of local government which deals with such things?

Of course, I don't know if having one will change anything, but I think it's worth a shot!!

Thanks.

The box units are around $200 and a re-load of bags is $60 for three hundred. What type of ordinances does your area have? Simple "Pick-up after your pet" signs might work better as a start. Some people are just unthinking (was going to say dumb) and might just need a reminder. Others walk their dogs and let them crap in other people's yard because they don't want it in their own.

Wow! I just bought over 400 bags for $19, including shipping, from eBay! Are they magical doggie-doo bags?

I wasn't asking about car jacking. You obviously don't care about Green Living (or spelling) so why are you wasting my time?

No, municipal purchasing, sized to fit the boxes we use.

Well the "green" thing to do would be just leave it there. I mean, what's more eco-friendly: natural waste in a natural yard or natural waste in petroleum-based bags clogging up a landfill?

I mean, it disintegrates eventually. Wash it down if there's that much of a problem.

Why should the OP have to clean up other ppl's dog's poop? I have two dogs and I wouldn't dream of just letting them crap in my neighbor's yard. My dogs = my responsibility.

I would contact county officials and see about putting up the poop bag dispenser. Maybe get a petition going around the neighborhood, if possible.

I live in the mountains where dogs run as they please and poop in everyones yard, mostly mine.
I don't like it but it will disappear eventually and I agree with what one of the posters said about it's best if it's not in a plastic bag in a trash dump somewhere.
I think it's a respectable thing to do in a neighborhood to clean up after your dog but I would try to do away with so many plastic bags.
