    Default Poop box.

    My gift to @JAKEISGREAT today:

    My usual method for disposing of dog poop is to put it in a grocery bag and throw it in the trash. Not very "green", I think. Now that my dogs don't poop as much as they used to, I'm going to attempt to save the landfill from having to decompose my many plastic bags and try a poop box.





    We'll see how it goes.

    Does anybody have some experience with this system?

    I got Bullied and loving it!

    I have a 5 gallon plastic bucket in which I drilled several holes. I collect poop from the fenced in area to put in the bucket and then dump the bucket about once a week in wooded section on my property

    I don't have a place to dump a poop bucket. City girl.

    I thought of composting but never really got around to making a compost bin. Besides, I don't really use fertilizer in my ornamental plants. I got native plants so I can just stick them in the ground and hope they survive.

    I'm confused. I get that's a garbage can with the bottom cut out? What's with the drain cleaner? That can't be part of the process can it?

    For me, her name was Abby

    I don't think the roto rooter is a drain cleaner. It's enzymes that help decompose fecal matter. It's used in septic tanks to enable the crap to decompose better

    Is this a homemade version of the ones you can buy in stores? My husband and I were just looking at a system like this for purchase in Lowes over the weekend. It said you have to buy tablets to be put in it weekly.

    That's what I'm thinking too. With my 3 plus always having a foster I do a LOT of cleaning up out there. And one of mine is a Great Dane!

    THey act like a septic tank that rural homes use. The additives that you add provide the necessary enzymes, etc. That are needed to break the poo down. Otherwise you end up with a bucket of poo... lol AND... you can't use them in Clay like we have in our yard. Can you tell I looked into installing one? lol

    Depending on your number of dogs and the amount of poop get one to several 5 gallon buckets, drill some holes in them to allow water to escape and then dump in wooded area. If no wooded areas near by then during the wee hours dump in a relatively nearby neighbors yard when they ain't watching
