Why We Can’t Ignore the Problem of Dog Waste Removal

Possible contamination of water supply sources in your area

Nowadays so many people own dogs in the major cities and if each dog in a city were to drop its poop, without proper dog poop removal, there would be a huge problem. It is estimated that each dog produces just about 275 pounds of poop per year on average. Now, when this is not properly managed and well discarded, we will be dealing not just with an environmental problem but an environmental health hazard as well. Imagine during days of heavy downpour, there is a possibility of dog waste possibly being washed into the rivers or lakes. When this occurs, these vital water sources can easily get polluted with toxic and harmful animal waste. Of course, you understand where most of the water supply from the big cities comes from and the potential for them being polluted with dog waste because that waste was not collected by the pet parent.

Children also face the possibility of touching or playing with un-picked dog poop

Dogs are known to leave behind their poop almost everywhere they go; children playground, parks, sidewalks, etc. Of course, it is natural for dogs to poop because they eat just like we human eat and have to visit the toilet to empty our bowels. The issue comes in when a dog owner goes out for a walk with his/her dog and leaves the poop on the sidewalk, children playground or any other place.

Young children are known to play with almost anything they come across including dog poop left in the open. Even though most children are usually wise enough to avoid dog poop when they come across it, in some unfortunate incidences some children have smeared themselves with it!  While dog poop might not be that readily fatal to a kid that plays with it, but this can be unpleasant and also lead to the possibility of a multitude of other serious side effects that are already aforementioned in this piece above.
