Toronto’s Poop Problem

Toronto’s dog owners are doing a good job of scooping poop—so good a job, that up to 27% of the city park’s trash is dog waste. That’s around 1,400 tons of poop filling the landfills every year. Toronto doesn’t have the money to place “green” waste bins in all their parks, so they’re asking people to cart crap home with them to dispose of in their home green waste bins. Seems like a bad idea to ask people drag doodie around with them after they’ve bagged it. Doesn’t take a genius to figure out that people will stop scooping and instead of too many turds in the trash, there will be pup pellets all over the parks.

San Francisco is addressing the problem of prolific poop without asking owners to tote turds home.
