I cannot understand why someone would pick up doggy do's and hang them in a tree...where is the mentality in that?
If you think about it, dumping dog turds in ordinary bins for the collector to dispense with?

Not very good, in fact having dedicated people risking life & health just for the selfish joy of having a dog?

Maybe it's time we had a mass cull of this vermin?

Well of course not, but maybe, just maybe, we should have dog owners being made to be responsible for their pooch?

Less, if you go to Haslingden, or Bury.....the bins are all marked with signs that say dog waste can be disposed in them......so they must have considered the health risks to their operatives.
What about the disposal of human waste in household bins? Is that any different?
Babies nappies and stoma bags are disposed of in this manner.
Refuse operatives are all provided with PPE.....and they do not actually handle the waste from the bins.....and who do you think empties the dog waste bins?

I don't believe it!
Collecting empty bottles from tips was bad enough.

The dog poo bags from H.B.C. are biodegradable.

I wasn't referring to those bags, but to the bags that ordinary litter is put into.
I don't think they are biodegradable.
The bags from the Town Hall are excellent value for money and are superior to any others we used.

I once considered putting a sign on my bin requesting dog walkers not to use it for their dog droppings. Instead, I just listen out for the truck and drag the bin back into the garden as soon as it's empty.

A couple of years ago someone had tossed their little nappy bag of poo into it. Better than sticking it on my tree, I suppose, but then it ends up festering for a fortnight and potentially bursting as other refuse is put on top of it.

Oh, and there's a proper dog waste bin 50 yards from where I leave my refuse bin on collection day...

Re: "Poo dunnit"

It's your dog and your dog's poo.
You should have to take it home with you and tip it in the loo or put it in your bin so you can have the smell on a hot sunny day.
Why should we have to have poo bins overflowing and stinking. Think of the poor devils who have to empty them and the cost to the council!
Why should we have trees decorated with poo bags?
It's your dog so it's your poo. Take it home!

Don't get me wrong. I'm a dog lover, we've had them all our married lives and I'd love one now. But picking up hot dog poo and walking around with a bag of it- that's one of the things which puts me off the idea! Besides which I'm too knackered to give a dog a proper walk.

Until you forget it's in there and thrust your hand in hoping for loose change or a hanky.

A few weeks ago I picked up after my dog but there were no bins between there and the car, so I just chucked it on the dashboard to dispose of at home.

I don't use the car if I can avoid it. Only remembered it was there three days later...
