There are many claims that people do not clean up after their pets — just one of the many positive things about the new pet-waste stations that city officials are trying to get neighborhoods to “adopt” (“Pet stations will aid curbside pickup,” July 6).
As more neighbors use them, it will also mean less waste entering the storm drains, keeping pollutants out of the storm drain system.
If you have a pet and have been leaving your pet waste out, just walk a little more until you see the stations with baggies.
Today, people are more excited to have pets, but they sometimes don’t take responsibility for what their pets do. Installing these stations may make pet owners feel more responsible among their neighbors and city.
