Pet Waste

Disposal Options

Pet waste should be sealed in a plastic bag and placed in the trash. Waste from meat-eating animals should not be composted at home if the compost will be used on a garden due to pathogens that can be passed to humans. Cat litter and pet waste is not accepted for composting at the District Transfer Station or at town drop-offs. Flushing pet waste is not recommended as waste water treatment plants don’t necessarily kill the pathogens present in pet waste, which can harm marine life.


The fee associated with your town drop-off or curbside collection service applies for this item.
