Westmont, Illinois -- Date Issued: May 3, 2021
The Conservation Foundation has initiated an information campaign in which they are encouraging dog owners to clean up after their pets. By taking the responsibility of cleaning up after our pets, we make our neighborhoods, parks, and other public places clean and healthy for everyone. Picking up after your dog every time, everywhere also protects our rivers and streams from nutrients and bacteria in pet waste that stormwater runoff brings into nearby waterways. When walking your dog, remember to be prepared with bags and always throw the waste into a garbage bin.
The Westmont Public Works Department and Westmont Park District are supporting the effort and additional signage and waste containers have been installed at several locations to remind citizens to clean up after their pets.
