Help Restock Bags at the City's Dog Waste Stations

Post Date:09/08/2017 1:00 p.m.

Dogs are a big part of Sausalito. With walks downtown, in our parks, in the hills, and on the beach, dogs have a good life here. It has even been suggested that there are more dogs than children in Sausalito!

With dogs comes dog waste. Did you know that the City of Sausalito spends over $5,000 each year on dog-waste bags? It also takes City staff approximately eight hours a week to check and refill bags at the twenty-three dog waste stations around town. That's a lot of money and time.

Although the bags go in the trash and not the compost, they are made of a special material designed to break down over time, so we want to encourage everyone to use them. 

The City could use your help with restocking bags at dog waste stations. If you live near a station and would like to help out (no dog necessary), we can set you up with a case of bags. All we ask is that you check the station a few times a week and keep it well stocked. If you go out of town, ask a friend to help out — or let us know and City staff will take care of the station.

If you are interested in helping out, please fill out a volunteer form. Any questions may be directed to Parks and Recreation Director Mike Langford at or (415) 289-4126.
