Dog Waste

How can we as a community work on reducing the amount of pet waste in Pilsen? Every block has at least 2 piles of pet waste around my area, 16th to 18th between Halsted and Racine. The alderman signs are not working. At this point, its about getting together as a community because it has gone too far. Not only that, my dog tends to eat the waste.

How can we as a community work on reducing the amount of pet waste in Pilsen? Every block has at least 2 piles of pet waste around my area, 16th to 18th between Halsted and Racine. The alderman signs are not working. At this point, its about getting together as a community because it has gone too far. Not only that, my dog tends to eat the waste. So let's save our community and my dogs breath. Should we encourage businesses and home owners in the area to provide waste bags? I know that it's not their problem, but if we care about our neighborhood, our health, the expense could be ever changing. Beer and alcohol bottles are next. I love the culture, small businesses, and the food carts in the morning. It's a really special place to live. Please. Ideas are welcome!

    Becca, unfortunately it is very difficult to educate people of low social responsibility. My neighborhood has seen a large uptick in pet waste clean-up responsibility during the past 5-6 years not due to any other reason than gentrification, unfortunately. As a Latina I had wished differently for years but it is hard to teach an old dog owner new tricks. Many of the people who let their pet waste lay where it was excreted are the very same people who have left the neighborhood. I think there is a soon-to-be-discovered link between intelligence, dog poop clean-up, and the ability to afford one's residence.

  • They should create a dog park so people know where to take their dogs. I know many people like to use the trees planted on the sidewalk, but as you pointed out, don't pick up after themselves.
