SAN FRANCISCO, CA. (THECOUNT) — Department of Public Works director, Mohammed Nuru, says San Francisco will spend about $750,000 to search for and clean up – human poop.
San Francisco’s decrepit, feces-ridden sidewalks are the residents’ No. 1 complaint — so the city’s newly elected mayor is creating a new clean up patrol to deal with “No. 2.”

The California city, which has been battling increasing homelessness over the last couple of years, launched a new pilot program called the “Poop Patrol,” which is set to scour targeted neighborhoods looking for human waste.
The city’s 311 service has received nearly 14,600 calls about piles of poop, other human waste and dog feces since the beginning of the year.
The “Poop Patrol” – part of the city’s Pit Stop program which provides staffed public toilets around the downtown areas – will begin patrolling the alleys around Polk Street and other hot spots in a vehicle equipped with a steam cleaner. source
Out of the 7,499 homeless people recorded last year, about 58 percent, or 4,353 people, were marked as unsheltered. The other 3,146 were designated sheltered.
