  • Get quotes from many vendors and choose a vendor to supply your waste stations.

  • Advertise your pet waste station to educate residents about it and its uses.

Installing pet waste stations is not only economical, but also very efficient. Though it may sound very expensive in the beginning, in the long run, these pet waste stations tend to be a cheaper way of handling the pet wastes. Once installed, a very minimal amount of maintenance is required. But, remember, there are many options to choose from. Using the best combination of options will not only save your money, but also help make it efficient.

First of all, always opt for a bio degradable poop bag. It is almost the same as plastic poop bags, but with a huge benefit in controlling pollution. Remember to choose a pet station that is made of heavy duty metal that lasts longer. Make sure you plan ahead on the station locations and signs. Your goal should be to make it easier for residents to clean up after their pets.

Lastly, the most important of all, you need to make sure that the pet waste station ordinance is adopted by all in your location. Until and unless, the regulation is followed by all, there is no efficiency to the steps you have taken. So, make public officials draft ordinance or regulations for your location and also publicize the station to educate residents about it
