Get the Scoop on Poop!

Sirius, our spokes-pooch, is serious about keeping our waterways clean!

We love our Dogs but dog waste carries harmful microorganisms that make our waters unsafe for swimming and drinking. Picking it up and disposing of poop has a major benefit, especially in paved areas and near streams and lakes!!

Wilton has over 900 dogs and each dog “goes” once or twice each and every day! Not only is that gross when left around, it can be dangerous!  Harmful bacteria such as Giardia or Salmonella that live in pet waste can come into contact with people or other pets or wash in to waterways and storm drains.


Before there were two poop stations with bags and trash, Whiting Park had a problem with poop!  Check out this map of Whiting Park from 2015.

2021 & 2022 update!
Twice - once in the August 2021 and once in February 2022, the same streets were walked by the same poop monitor and ZERO "incidents" were observed. Thanks to the dog owners and thanks to the DPW for making sure that in all weather, dog walkers have access to poop bag stations and trash cans.


Take the Pledge to Scoop the Poop!

Yes! I pledge to scoop the poop every time to protect ourselves, our pooches, our waterways, and our community!

rizes will be awarded from a drawing of all the Pledge takers!  Get your name in!
