Dog waste pick-up service
Pet Scoop is a Denver-based pick-up service dedicated to sustainable practices. The company has partnered with EnviroWagg to turn part of the dog waste it collects into compost that green up landscaping.
Households and residential complexes can contact Pet Scoop’s Waste-Not Service to receive a lidded container and bag for pet waste. Pet Scoop will pick it up weekly and send it to EnviroWagg for composting.
Pet Scoop transports waste from EnviroWagg’s green partners to Soil Rejuvenation Garden Bed Supply for composting.
The municipalities below contribute to sustainability by participating in EnviroWagg’s composting program. The parks departments have installed stations with compostable bags, separate waste receptacles and signage at their dog parks to make it easy for visitors to divert their dog’s poo from the trash.
