General Information

One of the simplest and most basic responsibilities of pet ownership is to clean up after your pet. Whether on public areas or in your own backyard, clean it up rather than assume that rain will wash it away. During any time of the year it is important to keep things clean. Spring and summer are when things really start heating up over the animal sanitation issues between neighbors. Temperatures rise and the odors from an unkempt lawn ride on the heat waves. When disposing of your pet's waste (double bagged), make sure you close the garbage can lid!

If you are having unpleasant experiences concerning foul and offensive waste odors, contact us using the information to the right to lodge a complaint.
