  1. Health hazards to municipal waste workers from the bacteria, viruses and parasites they collect and transport.
  2. Contamination of soils and waterways should the pet waste leach into the water table.

  4. In most landfills, conditions prevent organic material from decomposing – even if in biodegradable bags.

It can lead to cramps, diarrhea, intestinal illness and serious kidney disorders in humans. Pet waste can spread salmonella and Giardia.
