A Patz Gutter Cleaner in Bronx, New York?


The Patz Gutter Cleaner winds around in front of all the pens for easy disposal of waste materials.

The Bronx Zoo is host to 2 million visitors each year. In addition to over 6,000 animals from 650 species housed there, the zoo is home to three Patz 400 Gutter Cleaners!

The Patz 400 Gutter Cleaners are installed in the James Carter Giraffe Facility at the Bronx Zoo. In addition to giraffes, this facility houses zebras, mongoose, lovebirds, ostriches, wild dogs, and cheetahs. With this multitude of animals, zoo staff members need to be sure to keep up with waste management. Zookeepers say that the gutter cleaners are a “labor saving asset” to their facility.


When cleaning stalls, zookeepers deposit waste material into a gutter that winds around in front of all the pens. The barn cleaner takes the waste to a collection point outside the facility, saving time and labor for staff.

Thanks to the proven performance of the Patz Gutter Cleaner, the animals at the Bronx Zoo are assured a healthy and clean habitat to live in.
