WHAT A MESS Town Urges Residents To Stop Tossing Dog Waste Bags

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — Wilmington Animal Control Officer Christopher Sullivan recently took to social media to remind residents not to throw dog waste in catch basins.“I was notified by DPW that they recently removed a large amount of dog waste bags that were dropped in catch basins in the Lt. Buck Dr./Moore Street area, as well as a few throughout town,” wrote Sullivan. “Not only is this a MAJOR violation in stormwater quality, and just plain disgusting, it is illegal.”Sullivan asked residents to read this brochure to better understand the seriousness of the problem.The brochure reads, in part:Pet waste is a major source of water contamination and contains harmful bacteria and parasites. Dog feces can contain fecal coliform bacteria, which can spread diseases like Giardia, Salmonella, and Campylobacter, causing serious illness in humans. Rain and water from melting snow flows across yards, dog parks, and other surfaces on its way to our water bodies, via our streets and storm drains.Be a responsible pet owner and clean up your pet’s waste every time. Never dispose of pet waste in a catch basin, which flows directly into our waterways. Sullivan noted anyone who throws their dog waste bags into the town’s catch basins can be fined $300 per day by the Wilmington Department of Public Works and $300 per day by the Wilmington Board of Health.Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.
