DOG WASTE COMPOSTING
Instead of placing dog waste into a plastic bag that will take 1,000 years to degrade, or using valuable water to flush it down the toilet, consider setting up a dog waste composter. For step by step instructions with pictures, go to the following website: http://homepage.mac.com/cityfarmer/PhotoAlbum22.html
The instructions without the photos are:
This waste biodegrades and flows into the subsoil. It is not used as compost in garden beds. "Collect the dog waste and drop it into the hole. Sprinkle a packet of septic tank starter on top of the dog doo and add a litre or so of water. Cover the hole with the lid. Within 48 hours, the septic tank starter, which is non-caustic, and promotes natural bacterial growth will have begun its work and you can add more dog waste. You can then begin to add it daily."
Please do not hesitate to call us or email us at KFMB if you have questions. We have tried it and it does work!
