[ARCHIVED] Reminder: Pet Waste Rules

A friendly reminder to our local dog lovers, owners, and sitters:

A walk in the park can quickly be ruined by stepping in dog 'doody'. While most of our residents are careful to clean up after their dogs, it has come to our attention that some are falling short in their duty to properly dispose of pet waste. 

Please remember that the use of public lands by our four-legged friends requires that we carry and use the instruments needed to keep those lands clean for all to enjoy. This includes our local recreation fields, parks, playgrounds, sidewalks, and cemeteries. 

For more information on the City Code governing the removal of dog defecation from public and private properties, please see §18-12: Removal of dog defecation from public and private properties

Thank you for doing your part to keep our lands enjoyable for all!

Additional Tips

  • Dog owners can help prevent contamination of local waterways, parkland, and beaches by picking up after their dogs. Dog waste should be placed in a proper trash receptacle. 
  • Never throw rubbish into the stormwater grates in the street. These catch basins are for stormwater. During rainy weather, dog waste that is not scooped up is carried in stormwater runoff to catch basins. Catch basins connect to Lebanon’s storm drain system that discharges to the Mascoma River as well as Stoney Brook, Great Brook, and other waterways. 
  • Dog waste pollutes our parks and other grounds in addition to being unpleasant and unhealthy for residents, and aquatic life. Please help by picking up after your pet and disposing of the waste properly.
