People usually dump the poop from the scoopers straight into the garbage dumpster, which is at the far end of the parking lot. If you're volunteering during cleaning hours, usually there's a garbage can in the courtyard that you could empty the scoopers into. We haven't put a permanent receptacle out in the socialization field because it would attract a ton more flies to the dogs in the courtyard area.

Bins in the laundry room would be GREAT. I think multiple smaller bins would be better than one big one, so we can keep scoopers separate from toys and so on. Poor building ventilation is a big part of the smell problem, we could really use air filtration systems in the rooms. And there's just more cats than can comfortably fit in there. We've tried reducing our cat adoption fee for weeks at a time, we do $20 Saturdays, we offer 2 for 1 cat adoptions, but there's still just SO many. Many have been here for months, passed over in favor of kittens, so hopefully when the kitten numbers drop in winter, we'll have more adult cat adoptions. We have heavy-duty automated air fresheners in the dog areas that be great to have in the cat rooms too.
With the front counter, obviously we're limited by the lack of space, but we did clear some of the clutter by putting a shelf near the door for all the forms... maybe a wall-mounted rack for brochures & flyers would help even more... Or a remodel. :)
