In Colorado alone, pets can generate nearly 400 MILLION pounds of waste per year!  If not picked up and disposed of properly, rain and snowmelt can wash that waste into the Arkansas River and other local waterways where it will release nutrients as it decays.  This can possibly lead to excessive growth of algae and weeds.  Dog waste also can carry bacteria, viruses and other pathogens that will also be released as it decays.  So please help prevent pollution by picking up after your pet and putting the waste in the trash container.

Remember:  Keep It Clean Because We All Live Downstream!
