Hoboken initiates adopt-a-pet waste stations

To combat pet waste, Mayor Ravi Bhalla and the City of Hoboken are launching an “adopt-a-pet waste station” program.  The stations, which will include a starter supply of pet waste bags, will be purchased and installed by the City free of charge for interested property owners or condominium associations pledging to maintain and refill the station with bags.

“My administration is committed to clean streets and sidewalks,” said Mayor Bhalla. “I encourage property owners across Hoboken to help play a role and adopt free pet waste stations, which have been successful in reducing pet waste in other regions.”

Interested property owners are asked to fill out an “adopt-a-pet waste station” request form, which will be evaluated by the Department of Environmental Services. If accepted, the City will purchase and install a pet waste station with one pet waste bag dispenser, signage, and a starter supply of pet waste bags within one block of the property.
