Henderson Municipal code pertaining to sanitation (HMC 7.04.130) reads as follows:
One of the simplest and most basic responsibilities of pet ownership is to clean up after your pet. Whether on public areas or in your own backyard, bend over and scoop the poop. Believe it or not, there are actually people who make a living hiring themselves out to pick up and dispose of other people's pet's waste! During any time of the year it is important to keep things clean. Spring and summer are when things really start heating up over the animal sanitation issues between neighbors. Temperatures rise and the odors from an unkempt lawn ride on the heat waves. When disposing of your pet's waste, make sure you close the garbage can lid! If you don't have a lid, dispose of the waste in a garbage bag and tie it off or seal it before leaving it in the garbage can.
DON'T BE A POOP! STOP AND SCOOP!
