Pet Waste Stations
Our dog-walking residents enhance the vitality and security of the District. Some apartment buildings furnish dispensers and pet waste stations for their tenants. Many walkers clean up after their pets with their own glove-bags. With the cooperation of management companies and condominium associations, the District provides pet waste stations to further comply with the City ordinance (See Pet Waste Station Map).
Our stations have polite signage, locked dispensers, and convenient waste cans. They are adjacent to public sidewalks and face the street. They do not block the facades of the residences, and no advertising is permitted. The District supplies all bags. Civic-mined volunteers maintain the stations.
To report any concerns please contact Mike at 314-454-1979.
