This is amazing. I have a very large dog (160 pounds) and his "waste" is, how shall we put it, LARGE. I have a galvanized can outside that has a contractor cleanup bag liner, which is very heavy gauge. I use a scooper and put it in there, and in that can goes the fireplace ashes as well, and when it is full I tie it up and it goes out to the street just like the rest of the trash - never heard a peep about it.

We just recently finished fencing in our property so now he can go out in the woods, which he prefers to do, but at our old house we had a Doggy Dooley, which is basically a hole in the ground with a hinged lid, and you scoop the waste into it, and add an enzyme mixture once a week or so to dissolve the waste and it "goes away" underground. There may be a concern if you have a well, but that's a good alternative to throwing in the can if they get on your case about it.

Just when you think you have heard everything... 8O

get a plastic grocery bag, pick it all up, tie the bag closed, and toss it in the trash can.
Even though the thought of a doggie w/a pamper on is kinda funny, I meant substitute the pamper for the bag. Pick it up. Throw it in the pamper. Still I was being funny, cause who wants to have to buy pampers instead of trash bags for that madness.

I'm sorry, but having met you, the picture of you lugging that load around won't go away!

Quite the visual, isn't it? That's not something people warn you about when you are thinking about getting a large breed dog. Those dookies are something. Anyone sneaking around our yard who spotted one of them would definitely hvae second thoughts - first thought: "Lion?"

the nice thing about my "little" dog is, you step on one of his presents and well one swipe in the grass and its gone...
One of those 160lb dog piles and well...you have to break out the pressure washer, that is if you can even get your shoe out of it... I have always had large dogs, so I know the land mines the big dogs can leave behind.
My Jack Russells best friend is a 150lb Rotti named Cypres. It looks like Mutt & Jeff when the two of them are walking together.

Sure...sort of...from my municipality's waste-collection laws:

"10. Except as otherwise provided in sections 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15, an owner shall ensure that
the following types of waste are not set out for collection from his premises:

(e) animal waste, dead animals or animal parts;

15. A person may set...animal waste...
out for collection if it is packaged in securely tied, double plastic garbage bags."

The dead animals and animal parts bit makes me wonder what the average homeowner is supposed to do with the bones from the roast chicken from dinner, though.

I bet the "health concern" is the waste company reacting to complaints form the trash man employee. He dumps the can, gets fido's pride all over himself, and then complains. Maybe even calls in sick, or says he has to go to the doctor.

Just bag it well, and I bet you never hear another thing.

Here in Toronto there is a "green bin". Any garbage that smells or is wet goes in there. Like compost and dipers. Its a pain in the ***. Everything has to be sorted and taking the thing out is gross. I now have to think about where I am going to toss the stuff?!?!

The only health concern I can think of is Roundworm. Both dogs and humans can get it. It surely wouldn't kill the thrash collector, but could make him/her very sick. Perhaps there are other diseases or parasites that could affect dogs or cats and Humans, I don't know. I put the cat litter and Dudley's poo out in our garbage, never heard a word. I do double bag it, use a plastic grocery bag for picking up the poop, then put it all in a regular trash bag. I'd bet if you do that you'll never hear from them again.
