Postnum: 16 EntryID:49
Can anyone tell me how large quantities of dog feces can be disposed of? Wouldn't this be considered to be sewage waste? Any idea where I can dispose of such in an environmentally friendly fashion? Currently kennels, vets, groomers are throwing it in the garbage but bi-laws prohibit this.

I have not heard of it not being allowed to through dag waste in the garbage. We make and sell a product called the poop stop, it can be seen on our web site, we sell these all across the country, I would like to find out more about this by law. G. A.

Also, what about cat litter? I am not familliar with any bi-law of this in our city, but can it cause harm to the environment?

If we could reinstate an old method of tanning leather Dog Feces could be used...in the 1800's "purefinders" took their findings (dog feces) and were paid by those in the hide tanning industry by the bound.

The cheapest way is to create a mini-septic tank in your back yard. For my two dogs and cat I've used a 23L plastic pale. Drill some drainage holes on the bottom, dig a hole, line it with a few inches of gravel and place the pale into the hole. Put the waste in the bucket, add a bit of water now and then to make a slury slush and let nature do the rest for you. The waste will decompose and drain into the ground. You can add a bit of straw/shredded paper to assist with the decomposition. The smell is minimal. Once a year you'll scoop the solids out and can use for compost on non edible plants(trees, flowers). Don't use it for food as some pathogens may still be present which could transfer to your food. Depending on the amount of waste you have, you may need a garbage can. Happy Composting
