a clean, compostable solution to dog waste for urban pet parents


Dog waste is a huge problem in many major cities such as New York City. Founder and CEO, Anna Gannon, a long-term resident of NYC, had noticed this issue, along with the fact that there is no ideal solution to the problem. Current methods of picking up dog waste aren’t exactly good for the environment, and are unpleasant for the dog-owner. This is why she came up with Curbicus, an eco-friendly non-gross technological device that allows for efficient collection of dog waste. Take a look at our product page for more information about Curbicus, the ultimate pooper scooper of the future.


Curbicus is a patent-pending collection device that eliminates the “gross factor” when handling dog waste, and keeps our streets clean. Curbicus is a compact cylindrical device, weighing 1.5 lbs, and can attach to a dog leash or the pet parent’s wrist. It contains a small, battery-operated vacuum mechanism and self-closing compostable bags, making it an easy one-handed, two-step process. We are working on setting up a network of designated compost bins throughout cities, starting in NYC.
