Unfortunately magic won’t make dog poop disappear. Scoop it, Bag it, and Trash it. Did you know our county has over 40,000 dogs that create about 30,000 pounds of poop every day? Dog poop is raw sewage. It can contain bacteria, viruses, and parasitic worms that can make people and pets sick and pollute waterways.

Scooping up pet waste and putting it in the trash--both in your back yard and when taking your dog for a walk--is an easy thing all pet owners can do to help keep pollutants out of Terrell Creek and Birch Bay. Added benefits include clean shoes and lawns that are safe for children to play on.

BBWARM and community volunteers work to maintain and supply ten pet waste bag and trash stations along Birch Bay Drive for pet owners that forget their own bags. BBWARM splits the cost of disposal at these locations with the Whatcom County Health Department.
