LOL! one dog poo law for expats and one dog poo law for locals! or maybe expats use their hands and locals use their chopstick? expats put the poo in their LV bag and locals put it in their NTUC plastic bag?

No, it usually goes something like this....

Expat clean up poo. Local, if reminded of it, tells maid to clean up poo. But normally neither will do as local thinks tiny dogs have tiny poo so not necessary. Course when I take pictures of them while the start to walk away from the dog poo they get a bit annoyed and worried as well.

I usually post it in the residents committee's bulliten boards in the elevator lobby so everybody knows who owns the little poo'er!

I bring a plastic bag, then dump it into a hole in my garden and cover with layer of dirt.

When my worm farms get up and running, I will dedicate one to dog poo. The compost from that bin will not go to food producing gardens.

In SA I saw a company (need to find its details), they put in an in ground bin, throw in some microbacterial granular stuff and somehow that all recycles back into the earth... thought that would be good to put around the various singapore parks instead of giving out more plastic bags. There are garbage bins everywhere, why not doggy poo bins?

Well... out here in Watten Estates it seems that pretty much everyone (expats and locals) takes care of their doggy's calling cards... it is rare to see a mess on the sidewalks.

I'm getting the common dog owner community here for the awareness.
You may delete the entire thread if found to be inappropriate. Apologised again.

AAAhhhhh........ the benefits of living in landed properties. I should be so lucky again..... But living in HDB flats it's an altogether different story. I used to live in your area as well (about 2/3s the way up the hill) but that was 26 years ago.

Wow... my house was only 14 years old at the time! Yes, agreed... owning property... and being a lot more visible on the streets with your dog does encourage more neighborly behavior.

I don't think i would buy that as it just looks bad!!! Then the temptation is to still toss the plastic bag into a bin that goes to a landfill. bad bad bad.

The other in ground bin is better as the microbes tossed in can recycle the waste back into the soil.

Agree does look very strange like some dog bondage accessory, But CW if you don't use plastic doggie do bags what else are you suppose to use on your walkies?

Which made me think, how about going around with a 4inch core cutter like they use to get soil samples, (A tin can on the end of a 1m long T-bar.)

Doogie does a poop on the grass, you core a hole next to it a foot deep, scoop poop into hole and replace core?

The same tool used to core Golf course holes! You could also carry around a putter to tap the poo into the hole for a hole in one! :P
