    DefaultWhat to do with your doo...

    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.

    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).

    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.

    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.
