Disposing of dog waste. Any suggestions?
Holly from Richardson, TX
Flush it down the toliet?
We use a 5 gallon bucket with a lid. Put in a grocery sack, (that don't have holes in the bottom) and deposit the waste in it during the week, keeping the lid on. Then on garbage day just tie the handles and put out for the garbage man and put in a new grocery sack.
You can throw it away, or flush it down the toilet or bury it or throw into the woods. It is biodegradeable. :)
I knew a man who had two small house dogs. In his back yard, he started at one side, digging a narrow trench about a foot deep. He threw the waste in there (it was along the edge of a flower bed) and buried it. Every summer he sold great big nightcrawlers to fishermen for $2.00 a dozen! He said the worms were as big as his thumb.
I suggest using it as fertilizer in your flower bed or garden. It makes great fertilizer if composted or buried. Why buy something you dont need to buy when you can get it for free? lol
I see someone else has posted about a man who buried it and then sold nightcrawlers. Worms only come to good soil. So you know it is a good idea.
Best of luck.
