San Francisco Is Creating A Poop Patrol To Keep Sidewalks Clean

By Admin on August 15, 2018

Turns out one of the biggest complaints from San Francisco residents is how dirty the sidewalks are, according to SF Gate. But, we’re not talking regular dirt like mud, leaves or even trash. We’re talking poo. Which is why the city will launch a Poop Patrol next month.

Yes, the Poop Patrol is a real thing. It will consist of five Public Works staff members who will monitor known hot spots. The goal is to find the fresh, um piles, before residents do and clean them with a hose and steam cleaner.

“We’re trying to be proactive,” explained Public Works director Mohammed Nuru. “We’re actually out there looking for it.”

Apparently the city gets around 65 calls a day about poop on the sidewalk, which is crazy! Of course, the ultimate goal is to install more restrooms in parts of San Francisco. But for now, the Poop Patrol is a decent start. However, it seems like a sh***y job if you ask me. Come on…I had to.
