"POOP SCOOPER" ORDINANCE
Does Culver City have a "poop scooper" ordinance?
Yes, Culver City requires the owner to clean up after his dog on private and public property. The owner must carry something to pick up and carry the dog waste which must be properly disposed of. Violations are subject to citations with fines up to $500.
Why do I have to pick up my dog's poop?
Every time it rains, thousands of pounds of pet waste wash down storm drains and into streams, rivers and lakes. If not disposed of properly, pet waste flows directly into nearby streams and creeks without being treated at wastewater treatment facilities. A recent U.S. Geological Survey study of streams and creeks showed that bacteria associated with pet waste is the source of approximately 25% of the bacteria in samples collected from local waterways..
When pet waste is disposed of improperly, water quality isnít the only thing that suffers. Your health may also be at risk. Adults working in their gardens, children playing outside and family pets are the most at risk for infection from some of the bacteria and parasites found in pet waste.
My neighbor lets his dog poop in my yard. What do I do?
