  4. OK guys. My last post on the subject. I do not want to argue about this topic. Both sides have put their views. I have a professional interest in waste recycling. I work for a company that works closely to waste management companies. I know how they make their money. I have had a conversation over the last few days that tells me that at least one waste management company is not wanting dog poo in their bins and has told a marina not far from here to stop. All councils in this country accept this waste in domestic bins in this way. However being 'commercial', they have the power to say no.

  6. As per my comment on the other thread. Lets not fight to have the last comment. If you continue to push, the inevitable conclusion to me will not be good for dog owners. I dont have a dog.
  7. Ian!!!!!! Lets not try and have the last word? We can start the arguments up again and I can see the outcome. Lets put this to rest. I dont have dogs. Many others do.
  8. So Alan, what do you think when dog poo is banned in various bins? I think this is quite a serious issue. At least one marina in our area is being told not to put dog poo in bins in the last few day. Please will you stop discussing this.
  9. For once I agree fully with Ian. This argument could end with many waste management companies refusing to take any poo in their commercial bins and that would be very very bad for dog owners. Please can we stop discussing this topic. I have also asked the mods to close this thread and the others and not got a particularly helpful answer!
  10. Bloody sun did a runner yesterday and has not been back today. It was meant to be wall to wall sunshine!
  11. I'm glad to see that peeps are now understanding where this is going.
  12. Various web sites come up with the same number. I posted links to those sites on another thread. Just Google amount of dog poo in the U.K. to confirm. The amount is 340g per dog per day for the average dog. That is over 2Kg per week which is just short of the 2.5 to 3Kg per person we produce. Have you got a dog. Our two dogs, a Clumber spaniel and a Golden retriever used to produce mountains of the stuff....which was all composted.
  13. If you look at the links I posted on the other thread, the majority of it goes in to bins. Yes, some into dog poo bins but lots into normal bins. Dog poo bin contents are just tipped into the normal black bin stream.
  14. Not a lot. It works in the current system. Problem is most peeps here do not know it is happening and are disgusted at peeps putting dried poo in a bin. 10,000 tonnes a week are binned. A bit of dried poo is going to be a drop in the ocean and no one will notice. If you ban dried poo, why not ban dog poo? Its the same problem. Both are choices that people have. Its not essential to have this type of loo or a dog. Is it?
  15. Yes there is. The waste system is set up for dirty nappies, dog poo and incontinence pads....oh and cat litter! If Biffa say that this solid waste cant go in, then that look like discrimination as they are all the same waste codes. Do you put your cat litter in the bin? Cat litter contains worse disease. You cant re-use them but you can recover the various polymers. See below. Yes nappies are recyclable but not that many are recycled. As I said earlier they can be processed if they are not contaminated. I dont know the process but it will be similar
