    Sorry, strange question I know. I have been collecting the mess in dog bags and then putting it in the normal rubbish just before it is due to be collected. I was just thinking if this is allowed?? If not, what do you do with yours!? I have to clean it u straight away as I have young children who use the garden daily and my puppy will eat it if I don't!

    My local council state that dog poo should be put in with your normal rubbish.
    I pick it up, bag it and put it straight out in the wheelie bin.

    I either put in my wheelie bin or if feeling energetic take it to the poo bin down the road (I live near a dog walking area)

    if a bonfire in the near future it goes on there - I have a variety of ways :p so long as it's gone. It just can't go in the brown compost bin

    we have a bin the the garden with a black bag. its not a huge bin but not a tiny one its the in the middle kind with a lift up lead. once the bin is full (the bag is not) we then pull it out tie it up and put it in the wheelie bin. We have no where else to put it and if we tried to flush it like some people do with 1 loo in the house we would be forever flushing as there are 6 people living here too!.

    Throw it over the fence into farmers (arable) field where it fertilizes the corn flakes you had this morning! :D

    (If anyone found a ball-bearing can you send it back to me, it's off my KTM's headstock which Bear helped with!;))

    You're not being naughty - most councils request that's what we do with it.

    I collect it with a shovel and bucket every day and we then burn it once a week. We live out in the sticks so no issues with bonfires.

    :nono: Dog poo is picked up on the crop when it is harvested and makes its way through the crop. Dog poo in a bale of silage is not nice to handle (by the farmer or horse owner) or to eat!

    Our local farmer grazes pedigree animals on a piece of open land which is used by many dog walkers (we have Right to Roam legistation up here!) and the ammount of dog poo on the land results in him not being able to apply for organic status for his meat.

    I didn't realise all this till a farming friend told me. I used to leave poo in fields as I also thought it'd just break down and be good for the fields :blushing:

    A neighbour of my Mums once put dog poo on her front door step. She was under the mistaken impression that mums dog had fouled her garden! Needless to say there was no neighbourly love after that!:blink:

    After the snow melts the winter bags go into spring clean up, the County comes around and removes everything you put in the pile other than appliances. The rest of the time it is a normal amount so I put it in the regular garbage....Jill

    Our dog pooh also goes into nappy sacks/dog pooh bags and into the wheelie bin. Our cat litter goes into any handy plastic bag and also into the wheelie bin. I don't see where else it can go really apart from the toilet or burning it.
