Pet Waste Disposal Project

2012 Arlington, Virginia, USA

Sixth graders at Kenmore Middle School aimed to address bacterial contamination in Four Mile Run by repurposing used plastic bags for pet waste disposal at local dog parks. Collecting bags from the school community and neighbors, they were able to donate roughly 10,000 gabs to Arlington Dogs for this purpose.
