Green Pet was created to meet all your pet waste removal needs from Seattle, Washington to Portland, Oregon. While there are many pet waste removal services, Green Pet is different because we provide exceptional service and take your pet’s waste to be composted at our private facility.

Green Pet Waste Removal Services Include:

  • Weekly bucket services where we remove pet waste and compostable cat litter you collect for composting.
  • Weekly yard services where one of our helpful technicians will collect all dog poop in your yard for composting at our facility.
  • One-time clean ups for yards that need a little extra help before a big event.

Why Should You Sign up for Pet Waste Removal and Composting?

While we all love our pets, it’s impossible to deny they can have a negative impact on our land and water supply. In Seattle, 20 percent of all traceable bacteria found in our water was attributed to dogs. And millions of pounds of pet waste end up in PNW landfills each year, where it may not decompose due to a lack of oxygen. Plus, no one likes dealing with poop—and there are few good options for environmentally conscious pet owners.
