- Concrete Activities: 14-Apr, 6-May, 9-Jun, 23-Jun, 21-Jul

Maynard officials are reminding residents of their civic “doody” to scoop the poop in public areas and in their yards.
“Pet waste is more than a smelly nuisance. It can make people sick and pollute our local waterways,” says Kaitlin Young, Maynard’s Conservation Agent and Assistant Town Planner. “That’s why we’re asking dog owners to not only pick up after their pets, but to place their pet waste bags in a trash can.”
Scooping up pet waste in public areas is important for keeping Maynard clean and inviting to both residents and visitors. But it’s just as important to properly dispose of your pet waste too. When you walk your dog, make sure to carry a plastic bag with you. That way, you can pick up pet waste and dispose of it properly by throwing it in a trash can.
