Recently, there had been numerous complaints from legislators and public alike about environmental hygiene issues caused by dog wastes. To mitigate the situation, the Environmental Protection Bureau has notified various local environmental protection agencies each year to step up with the inspection operations. Dog owners who fail to clean up after their pets will be subject to penalties due to violations of the Waste Disposal Act. In addition, local environmental protection agencies were required to provide monthly reports on the results of implementation effective from May 2006. 
Paragraph 6, Article 11 of the Waste Disposal Act states “For the excrement and urine of livestock or poultry on roadways or other public premises, the owner or manager shall perform clearance”. In addition, Paragraph 9, Article 27 of the Act also states that “… raising of poultry or livestock that hinders nearby environmental sanitation” to be “strictly prohibited within designated clearance areas”. Pursuant to Article 50 of the Waste Disposal Act, violators will be subject to a fine between NT$ 1,200 – NT$ 6,000. If the violation continues after the end of the designated time period, then continuous daily fines shall be imposed. 

Be sure to wash your hands immediately after touching your pet or coming into direct contact with its wastes. You can contact the cleaning squad of your local district office should you find unruly stray dogs that are becoming a nuisance or threatening the area’s hygiene. The EPA is responsible for the supervision of local environmental protection agencies in the implementation of dog excrement eradication operations based on the Waste Disposal Act.
