    Differs from 1 council to another in my exsperaince, here you can if it's tied in plastic bags, another place it was only in the recylce container. My sisters place no dog poo in the rubish at all.

    Hi Fedra.

    Seems it's ok to place poo into worm farm. I wont be using it for edible plants though.

    Victorian link on DIY worm farm
    http://www.resourcesmart.vic.gov.au/documents/Worm_Farms_fact_sheet.pdf

    Link from original post.
    Dogs Life Articles, Dog Information - Dog Breeders - Dog Training,

    Need to buy suitable worms.

    As for disposing the waste into bins being illegal, then why are soiled disposable nappies permitted??

    Creates a catch 22 situation........



    Example:
    • Walk dog in public
    • Dog poo's
    • Owner ignores poo
    • Gets a fine
    Or
    • Walk dog in public
    • Dog poo's
    • Owner bags poo & puts in bin (private or public)
    • Gets a fine
    Sheesh, we can't win lol

    Good point Molly, but the links recommend certain varieties do a better job. Might try your idea first.

    Also says don't use poo from recently wormed dogs / cats....It kills garden worms

    Our state govt put out a rubbish wheel.

    So in to no bin is allowed
    dirt/rocks
    hazardous/medical waste
    (does that include food scraps?)
    electronic appliances
    building materials

    In to the general rubbish bin is allowed
    plastic bags and bin liners (like they're not toxic?)
    foam cups and food trays (")
    Food scraps (")
    clothing / nappies.

    So I figure if you're allowed to put dirty nappies in, then a bit of dog poo in a plastic bag is fine too. Not to mention it's really just slightly processed food scraps?

    I dunno where I'm supposed to put snotty tissues. (hazardous medical waste?). Like it's hardly a comprehensive list.

    can't find anything that says specifically what you can put in the general rubbish bin...

    What do you use the worms for then? Considering that many owners do not regularly de-worm their pets and they can carry all sorts of deseases I understand that statement. But what can you use those worms for otherwise then just for disolving poop?
    Respect and you shall be respected. Animal is always right.

    For the rest of the garden I suppose. Have a huge tropical section with palms, treeferns, birdsnest etc & a native garden out the front away from my dogs.

    I think that's what your asking?

    A good eco system will build up over a period of time, no smell, no mess, no plastic bags (exept when walking) breaks down very quickly. I don't use it for anything, wouldn't dare grow vegies.

    I go round with a plastic bag scooping up dog poos and then it goes into the bin.

    My friends husband stuck a special system in their back yard (in NZ) and there is a hole in the ground (with a sealable lid) and they scoop the poos up, drop them in the hole and then pop the hose in there and it flushes the poos away with the rest of the sewerage. Very clever.

    Unfortunately, when he first set it up he did something wrong and the pipe got blocked. He had the top off and was trying to fix it and it all blasted back out the hole and onto him LOL. I believe they have snce fixed the design.

    I have a old plastic planter pot that I line with a plastic bag and put the yard poos in that - I can't stand seeing them around either. She does tend to save up for the morning and afternoon walks - so those ones go in a plastic (biodegradable?) dog poo bag and in the bin at the venue. She has only pooped on the footpath once when she had a stomach upset and that was like a cowpat, but I picked it up as best I could.

    Thinking about a worm farm but I also think I will wait till winter before making / buying one. They don't do summer well.
    When I boarded my 2 pups I was asked had I wormed them in the last week as they put poop in a worm farm but can't if wormed recently.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.
