Snow Charge


 
We want to assure you that as long as your dogs continue to go, we will continue to come out and scoop as often as possible so that waste does not accumulate. We typically get calls from our clients with questions about Pet Scoop’s winter/snow scooping so we wanted to answer some of the most frequently asked questions. As always, if you need additional information, please do not hesitate to call us at  303-781-7667.


    Q. What is a “snow charge”?


A. When we are unable to clean or we do not find enough waste to justify a cleanup, we will issue you a snow charge for that cleanup. A snow charge is 3/4  the regular charge.


     Q.  Why do you still charge 3/4 the regular rate when you can’t clean?


A. We charge  3/4 the regular rate because the dogs continue to go, which means there will be that much more waste to clean on the next visit. It will take the technicians much longer to clean the additional waste. Please understand that when the snow melts there may be a significant amount of waste that has accumulated and you will not be charged extra for that cleanup unless you temporarily stopped service.



Q.  If it snows on the day you are scheduled or planning to clean, do you snow charge the cleaning or reschedule?


A. Whenever possible, we try to make up the cleanup so you don’t have a missed cleanup. This usually means we may be a day or two behind schedule. Our goal is to make sure that every client is getting a regular cleanup in order to keep the waste from accumulating. If we are more than 3 days behind schedule, we usually snow charge the cleanups.



     Q. Why do you clean my yard when it is snow filled?


A. Depending on temperatures and forecasts, we may clean your yard even though there is snow on the ground. We take advantage of breaks in the weather to get as much waste as we can so it does not accumulate; we get waste on top of the snow, in melted areas, and from decks and patios.

Pet Waste Stations: Help to Maintain a Clean Neighborhood

We all love to walk and be surrounded by a clean environment. Pet waste stations are the indispensable tool for keeping parks, streets, apartments, residences, and common areas neat from our friends’ waste. This simple plastic bag dispenser helps pet owners to walk hand-free from awkward dog waste scoops, letting them enjoy the stroll together with their dogs while respecting and maintaining a clean neighborhood.

Now days, dogs are part of our family and we would really do anything to see them happy. More than any other domestic animal they need to go out from the house at least three times a day in order to play, stretch their legs, and eliminate their wastes. This is when the pet waste stations become a useful help in dog owner’s lives, saving many others from distractedly stepping on these unconventional (and definitely not appreciated) “presents”. Indeed, dog wastes are not only an unnecessary decor of the sidewalks but also a potential harmful refuge for many bacteria that is dangerous both for human beings and other animals.   


Untitled designGiven these premises, choosing to adapt a pet waste station in the neighborhood would generate a series of positive benefits for the community. Firstly, having one of these dispensers strategically installed along the sidewalk will motivate the laziest of the pet owners who are discouraged from cleaning their pets’ wastes when they forget to bring a plastic bag with them while walking out the dog. Secondly, there is a positive effect also at an environmental level. Collecting our dog’s wastes with plastic bags will save toxins to be absorbed by the ground which would eventually end up through storms, into streams, and lakes. As a matter of fact many people don’t know dogs diet is not adequate to allow their wastes to be used as fertilizers making them even harmful for lawns and gardens. 



Lastly, for those who look at the financial impact, it is worth it to highlight that pet waste stations dispensers are not expensive. They are made of different materials and comes in different shapes for all possible tastes always extremely discrete in order not to be too invasive on the aesthetic of the neighborhood.

In conclusion, the proper usage of pet waste stations will help people save some good money in manpower for cleaning streets and yards while helping to increase the quality of life for everyone.
