I don't know know where dog poop goes after it gets tossed in the general bin but I think it would be great if dog friendly parks had a bin specifically for dog poo composting. I saw on tv once a lady in Perth had a bin like this set up on her front yard just so her neighbours could dispose of them. The waste is then broken down by worms and the rich compost eventually gets used for the community garden. This is something we can definitely do to 1) educate the community on more sustainable living habits, 2) encourage pet owners to change the way they manage their pet poo and 3) start practicing a positive habit that would hopefully inspire our younger generation.
