I was searching some clever options at to what to do with our dog waste and came across this and thought I would share.
I use to just toss it over my fence, but with having a 5 dog household now it is hard keeping the odor down.
Hubby said we can do this. Prolly this weekends project.
What a great idea!!
I sooo want to try this!! I wonder if it'll smell in our hot, humid summers??
A homemade doggie dooley. We have one. I was dreading digging the hole but the utility company was out in the alley with an auger. I asked and they did it for me. All it cost me was a few cans of soda.
I built one and it works well. If you got to the City Farmer website, where the composter was originally published, you'll find step-by-step photo instructions:
i collect it all a bucket for a week, and every wednesday, the garbage man gets to take it away (lucky him).

I like that idea!!!
I'm with Felicia, I wonder if it will start to smell bad though...

Ditto this. I have a 20 gallon trash can with heavy duty bags and a tight cover...so trash day comes, I tie the bag up, put other garbage in the can, set it out on the curb.Originally Posted by luke from georgia

I'm with the 'leave it for the garbage men' crowd. I like the idea of having a compost but I can't possibly see how it wouldn't smell over time. We have neighbours on either side so it wouldn't really be fair on them. What I do is get a big plastic bag and have a clear out every few days. Then the plastic bag with the poop in gets thrown out with the rest of the trash.
I can't wait to try this, unfortunately I will have to wait until we have our own place. I don't think it would go over real well here on the military base. That and I am not allowed to dig that deep
I place my little poo bags in the lined trash can outside and each time I open it it gags me. Amazing how much it stinks through plastic. I can't imagine it would be any worse than that.
if it is composting it should keep the odor down. right now i cannot stand the smell coming from the bucket (and it has a lid on it) as it is and has not been a week.
