LIMA — Pet waste is becoming a problem in the Lima area.
Allen Soil and Water Conservation District wants to remind pet owners to pick up your pet’s poop.
They say there are 83 million pet dogs in the U.S. and they produce some 10.6 million tons of excrement.
The pet waste, they say, is harmful to the environment, particularly our streams and rivers.
Options include putting the poop in the trash, or flush the poop down the toilet, bury the poop or compost it.
