Keep Redmond Clean

Help Keep Redmond Clean

Contribute to the cleanliness and well-being of Redmond by always cleaning up after your pet when in public areas. Decomposition consumes oxygen and releases ammonia, potentially leading to ecological problems in our local waterways. Pet waste stations are available in many of our parks, making it easy to keep our spaces clean and safe for everyone in Redmond.
