Be a responsible dog owner – ‘Scoop it if they poop it’


Now that the warmer weather has returned, the City of Sault Ste. Marie reminds dog owners to clean up and properly dispose of excrement deposited by your dog on any property, including your own, in all parts of the City including beaches and park areas. (Stoop and Scoop – By-law 87-125)

Excrements should be properly bagged and disposed of through garbage collection or brought to the City Landfill – 402 Fifth Line East.

Recycling carts are not the place for proper disposal. Large amounts of dog feces have been found in the carts and have contaminated the recycling process.

Additional information may be viewed at Copies of by-laws can be obtained by contacting the City Clerk’s office at 705-759-5388.
