The Scoop on Pet Waste
If left uncollected, pet waste gets washed into Glencoe’s wetlands, ponds, and streams. Pet waste contains bacteria, and other parasites and pollutants, that can affect water quality, pet and human health and recreation, and aquatic habitat and life.
The City of Glencoe requires proper pet waste management, as described in Chapter 7 of the City’s Code of Ordinances (615). Owners of pets must immediately pick up pet waste deposited on any public property and immediately dispose of properly. Proper disposal includes bagging waste and placing it in a waste receptacle.
Be prepared! Carry bags for waste with you when outdoors with your pets.
Put the halt on too much salt!
- De-icing salt is the top source of chloride use in Minnesota.
- Chloride salt can harm fish and plant life.
- Many people overuse de-icing salt. More salt does not equal more melting. Save $ and use less.
5 Simple things you can do:
- Shovel and scrape often. Clear walkways before snow turns to ice & avoid salt use.
- Select the correct de-icer. Salt doesn’t melt ice below 15° F pavement temperature.
- Sweep up and reuse leftover salt.
- Scatter salt only where critical. Aim for 3 inches of space between salt granules. Consider using a hand-held spreader for better coverage.
- Store salt indoors, in covered airtight containers, and away from runoff.
