Thanks for Being a Responsible Pet Owner
Scoop the Poop
We don't know exactly how many dogs there are in Virginia Beach.  But 100,000 is not an unreasonable estimate.  And we do know that they each produce between a half and a pound of waste every day.  If we don't clean up after our pets, we have a big problem and much of the bacteria from the waste left on the beach, the park or in your back yard ends up in the river. 

We are very thankful for our responsible pet owners who regularly clean up after their pets!  In our office, we have free Scoop the Poop stickers for your big black city trash can.  We also have free bag holders for your dog's leash or collar.  And information about how to apply for a Scoop the Poop station for your apartment of condominium complex. 

Are you on Facebook?  Join our Scoop the Poop -- VA Beach facebook page and share a picture of your dog.  Enjoy all the other responsible pet owner's pictures and stories about their "best friends".  Sign the Scoop the Poop pledge and join the rapidly growing list of people who love dogs and love the river! 

Thank you for Keeping Fats, Oils and Greases out of our Pipes

We all look forward to the bountiful food of Thanksgiving.  You can enjoy the feast and help the river this Thanksgiving by putting all fats, oils and greases in a can instead of down the drain.  Fats, oils and greases that are washed down our kitchen drains or through our garbage disposals, clog our pipes and can cause sanitary sewer overflows.  Please put grease in a can, freeze it and then place it in your city trash can on pick up day. 

 Thank you for keeping our pipes and the river clean!
