Dog Waste Program

In 2016 the City conducted an audit of the contents of public trash receptacles and found there to be a high percentage of dog waste compared to other waste materials. While small amounts of dog waste are permitted through the regular waste collection, large amounts are harmful to public health and the environment and are more effectively treated through the regional wastewater (sewage) treatment plant.

To address this public concern a dog waste pilot project was launched in 2017, placing ‘Dog Waste Only’ red bins in off-leash parks. Due to the success of the pilot program it has been expanded to include an additional 20 bins throughout the City. All bins are emptied weekly and the waste is taken to the wastewater treatment plant for safe disposal.

City staff will monitor the bin expansion program throughout 2018 and may add additional bin locations in the future.
