Dog Poo Bins: The Full Journey

Dog Poo Bins

If there’s one thing that causes a stink in the UK-literally-it’s dog poo. It smells bad and it contains dangerous parasites, so it must be disposed of properly. Here’s the lowdown on dog poo bins and what to do with dog waste.

What bin does dog poo go in?

At home

Dog poo must go in your general waste bin. It’s not recyclable or compostable thanks to the nasty germs it contains like Salmonella and E. Coli. Make sure you double-bag it to prevent odours or spillage.

Out and about

It goes without saying that you should always pick dog poo up. It not only leaves streets and parks looking unsightly, but it’s a health hazard too. If you don’t pick it up, you could end up with a fixed penalty notice of up to £100.
Bag dog waste and put it in a dog waste bin if you can. If there are no dog poo bins around, it’s fine to put it in a normal waste bin.

How does dog poo not smell in bins?

Dog poo shouldn’t make your household waste bin smell if you’ve double-bagged it. When it comes to special dog waste bins, they have features to keep odours at bay. These include hinged lids, lift-up lids, and one-way chutes.

How often is dog poo collected?

It varies between councils. Some councils empty dog poo bins a few times per day, while others carry out a weekly collection.

What happens to dog poo?

Dog waste is either incinerated or sent to landfill.
