Pet Waste Removal

Poop Bandit

Winter Garden




Q: What do you do with all that poop?

A: That is a question we get asked a lot, and it is a great one, because the answer is so important. Just to be clear about an icky subject, dog poop builds up awfully fast and can quickly get out of control. The average dog creates four pounds of poop per week—or 205 pounds per year! Where indeed does it all go?

Poop Bandit, unlike some poop removal services, carts off all the waste we remove from your yard. We have made special arrangements with the local landfill to offload our dog waste with them. It is the safest, healthiest way to dispose of it.

Many people are unaware that a service like ours actually exists. Why would anyone hire somebody to pick up the dog poop in their yard when they can easily do it themselves?

Answers vary but most of them boil down to: Yes, they can do it themselves, but no, they don’t. It takes time, and for a poop-free yard, you really need to be consistent about the cleanup. We get it. It’s not a fun job. It takes time that people never seem to have enough of. The kids complain and it’s always a fight to get it done. They won’t stay on task. It’s a pain.

Some actually think dog poop is good fertilizer for the grass—we’ve heard that one more than once. It is BAD for your grass. It kills it. It’s not good for you or your animals, either. Dog poop attracts insects. It contains dangerous pathogens like E. coli, Salmonella, Giardia, fecal coliform, tapeworms, hookworms, whipworms, roundworms, parvovirus, coronavirus, and hundreds of other harmful organisms.
Want to eat dinner out on the patio or have a backyard party with friends? Not with the smell of dog poop you don’t. We can fix that.

Prices start at around $16 per week, depending on the size of your yard and the size and number of your dogs. We serve residential and commercial (HOAs) clients! Poop Bandit comes every week, at the same day and time. And if we miss a spot, we’ll come back and give your yard another service for free. So, call us. Fire up the barbecue and invite some friends over for the weekend. We’ve got this.
