Importance of a clean yard
Your dogs waste can contain numerous bacteria and diseases such as Roundworm, E. coli, Giardia, Parvo virus, and coliform. These are easily transmittable and in some cases extremely harmful to other dogs and even humans depending on the bacteria. When your dogs waste is left behind in the yard it doesn't simply decompose and fertilize your yard.
You may have noticed when you leave pet waste for to long the grass around the waste appears yellow and burned. This is because dog waste is actually toxic for your yards health due to its acidic nature.
Fact: In 1991 the Environmental Protection Agency(EPA) classified your dogs waste as a "Nonpoint source pollution". Other pollutants in this category include pesticide, herbicide, and other toxic chemicals.
