Scoop it up, Austin – It’s Your Duty!

It Adds Up! If all the dog poop created in one day in Austin was put in one pile it would weigh 150,000 pounds.

What’s the Problem?

Pet Waste:

  • It’s not just smelly!
  • It’s not just yucky to step in!
  • It’s not just fertilizer!
  • IT’S A PROBLEM!

Human and Pet Health:
Pet waste can cause:

  • Giardia
  • Roundworms
  • Salmonella
  • Other unpronounceable Viruses and Parasites

Water Quality:
Nutrients in pet waste can cause:

  • Aquatic weeds
  • Algae
  • Gasping fish (no oxygen!)
  • Water that is just too nasty to look at or play in

What You Can Do?

  • Scoop It! Use a baggie as a glove, scoop the poop, invert and seal the bag
  • Toss It! It belongs in the trash
