ooo I do like that idea! I'd buy one of those tho not sure the Nparks would let us dig random holes!

I stole my son's beach bucket for walks, then dump it into the hole in the ground that I have. Soon, when my worms are up and "running" they will do the job.

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

You can recycle the PooTrap bag. And with the dogs wearing the PooTrap, we can have much better and cleaner environment as no matter how hard the dog owners picking up their dog poo, it can still stain the green and the pavements. Of course it get worse if they dun pick it up at all.

Always have lots of small bags either from convenience store purchases or canteen takeaways.
However, you can buy packets of bags especially made for dog owners.

Also carry a newspaper page torn in half, each piece folded in half.
Dog unloads twice on most walks.

I slip the paper under his butt just as he squats.
For the first poop actually use the plastic bag like a glove to fold the paper over and grab it into the bag.
Works well; no mess.

Hope that's not too much info.
:P

This applied perfectly well if the dog poo is solid. In the case where the dog poo is watery then it might posed abit of problem. And many time when dogs were unleased, i dun think the owners can react that fast and running around behind their dog butts to aim for the right slot. During late evening dog walking where the lighting is dim, it might pose another inconviency for some too. Well again, if everyone can be like you to take the extra efforts then maybe it can work for your mentioned method
