NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Wednesday marks the 40th anniversary of New York City's pooper scooper law.

To mark the occasion the city has installed a thousand waste bag dispensers in parks in all five boroughs.

Parks Commissioner Mitchell Silver says nothing ruins a nice day in the park like stepping in a pile of dog droppings, so be responsible -- don't dump and ditch!

He said with the bags the city is making available there's no excuse for leaving your dog's business behind.

New York was the first major city to enact the pooper scooper law.
