Eco-Friendly Dog Poop Disposal



What happens to all that crap once we toss it? Traditional methods like throwing it in the trash or flushing it down the toilet can have adverse effects on the planet (and your health).


In today's day and age, there are real options available for dog poop disposal (including hiring us!). Here are a few:


Composting

Composting is one of the greatest ways to dispose of dog crap. When done correctly, composting can break down dog dung into a nutrient-rich soil amendment that can be used in your garden.


Make sure to use a separate composting system for dog poop, because the poop can contain bacteria and parasites that could destroy a traditional compost pile.


There are now many specially-designed composting systems available for dog waste, including in-ground systems and stand-alone composters.


Biodegradable Bags

For pet owners who prefer plastic bags, biodegradable bags offer a more sustainable solution.


These bags are made from materials that break down faster in the environment, reducing their impact on nature.


Not all biodegradable bags are created equal though. Look for bags that are certified compostable, as these are made from materials that will break down completely.


Flushable Bags

While flushing traditional plastic bags down the toilet is not recommended, there are now flushable bags available that are designed to break down in water.


These bags can be a good option for those who want to flush their dog poop; reduce landfill waste FTW!


It's imperative to use these bags responsibly and only flush them in systems that can handle them.


Dog Waste Digesters

Dog waste digesters are specially-designed systems that use enzymes and bacteria to break down dog waste and turn it into a liquid that can be safely absorbed into the ground.


These systems are typically installed in the ground and require regular maintenance to ensure proper function.


While dog waste digesters are not suitable everywhere, they can be a great option for those who have a large volume of poop to dispose of.


Pet Waste Stations

Pet waste stations are a common sight in parks and other public areas where dogs are allowed.


These stations typically contain bags and a waste bin, making it easy for pet owners to clean up after their dogs.


Many pet waste stations are now being designed with sustainability in mind. Be on the lookout for stations that use biodegradable bags or that have a composting system built in.


There are now many eco-friendly options available for pet owners who want to dispose of dog waste responsibly.


By choosing the eco-friendly option, pet owners can help keep our planet clean and poop-free for the next generation!
