It's Your Doo-ty… Pick It Up: City Gets Serious About Dog Waste
The City of Beverly Hills encourages dog guardians to clean up after their pets and to take action against those who don't. "It's Your Doo-ty… Pick It Up" is the slogan on a sign that residents can place on their front yard. The City Council initiated the campaign in response to citizen complaints and concerns about public health.
In addition to the public nuisance, animal waste can get into storm drains and pollute streams, lakes and the Santa Monica Bay. Animal waste may be disposed of in the City's regular waste receptacles, and not in GREEN waste bins. The maximum number of signs allowed is one per property unless the property is a corner lot in which case two signs is the maximum.
Citizens may call (310) 285-1119, if they witness dog walkers leaving behind their animal's waste or violating any of the City's other municipal code ordinances.
