Pet Waste: Where Do You Dispose of it in the Home
Pet Waste: Where Do You Dispose of it in the Home?
If you have pets, one of the nightmares is not knowing where to dispose of their waste. The obvious thing to do would to dispose of it down the toilet, however this would mean bringing it into the house, which is extremely unhygienic. The only option left is to dispose of it in your bin – where your food and other household waste is also disposed of.
Due to the fact that bin collections occur less and less frequently, knowing where to put it all can be a real headache. Bin collections are usually every fortnight, meaning rubbish is stored in bins for twice as long as it was left for previously and therefore creates rather unpleasant smells when having to open and close it to dispose of everyday waste.
Another option would be to dispose of pet waste into a bin bag, as this seems to be the easiest solution, however they are extremely easy to rip and could cause unwanted spillages. Then, where do you put the bin bag when its full? It seems to be a vicious cycle that needs to be broken.
Leaving your bin bag out in the open without being concealed may cause unwanted attraction from flies, maggots and other unwanted pests, which infest outside or inside of your property.
So, what do you do?
One thing which may help is purchasing an outdoor bin dedicated to your pet waste, so you no longer have to dispose of it in the same bin as food and other household waste. Disposing of pet waste in the same bin can cause your bins to become full quickly and exposes your food bins to revolting smells and possible infestation, which could cause a number of other issues.
Buying another exterior bin could provide huge benefits for you, therefore it’s certainly worth looking into. For one, having a bin dedicated to pet waste prevents hazards or dangers associated with loose excess waste.
