Dog poop disposal can be messy, smelly and take up room in your wheelie bin. The common way of pooper scooping using plastic bags is not environmentally
friendly and adds to the landfill problem. As more councils are encouraging people to reduce their waste dog owners need to have an easy and hygienic way of dog poop disposal.
This is where the dog poop disposal system comes in. Those described here use biodegradable bags that either rot down to form compost or will be eaten by worms to produce worm castings, ie worm manure. These make excellent sources of compost and nourishment for your garden and can also be turned into liquid feed.
Whilst my four legged companion sat beside me I wrote a book which tells the story of
The Drummer Boy.
This novel is about the ghost of a Gordon Highlander Drummer Boy from the Battle of Waterloo who haunts a modern day army nurse.
Chapters take place in modern day Aberdeen, at the Noose & Monkey bar and restaurant as well as His Majesty's Theatre and Garthdee. Other scenes take place at Tidworth and during the Napoleonic War.

Dog poop disposal does not often make the news but it did in 2012 when a new superhero who fights against owners who do not clean after their dog was created. This was Dog Poop Man in the Czech capital of Prague. In keeping with traditional superheroes Dog Poop Man wears tights, a cape and a helmet to not only disguise his identity but to offer protection from angry dog owners. Dog Poop Man, who also calls himself SuperVaclav, seeks out owners who do not dispose of their dog poop safely and pelts them with their dog mess!
Dog Poop Disposal Vehicles
New dog poop disposal vehicles have recently been introduced by councils throughout the UK to deal with the problem of dog fouling at a cost of about £22 each. Each has special dog related names. For example in West Belfast it is called ROVER (Ride On Vehicle Excrement Remover), in Nottingham and London it is called the POOVER a motorbike with hoover attachment) whilst in Aberdeen it is called FIDO (Faeces Intake Disposal Operation). Such dog dirt removal machines are specially built by firms such as Trafalgar Cleaning Equipment.
Each dog poop disposal vehicle has a powerful suction hose to suck up dog poop and a spray hose that can disinfect the area that dog mess has been. They are small enough to manoeuvre down pavements and around local parks.
Other attempts to highlight the problem of dog poop disposal was to get council employees to spray the dog mess with pink paint to show the owners what a problem not clearing up after their dogs is causing. A recent report found that though 50,000 people complained to their councils about dog mess, only 6000 fines were issued in Scotland alone.
