How to Safely Dispose of Dog Poop & Cat Litter

You can safely get rid of your dog and cat litter in several ways. Sometimes dog poop and cat litter will develop a bad smell if it is left in your backyard or in your house. For this reason, you will need to locate the best ways to remove these types of waste.

There are several methods available hence you should opt for the best way which will allow you to handle it safely.

Here are 5 ways how to safely dispose of dog poop and cat litter:

  1. Scooping in plastic bags

You can scoop the waste into plastic bags and throw them in the dumpsters. It is an effective method because the plastic bags will prevent any odour from spreading in the house. It would be best if you had enough plastic bags for the technique to work well. However, it has a downside where plastic bags can pollute the environment in the long run. You must find and use environmentally-friendly dog poop bags to ensure that the plastic is made from recyclable.

  1. Flushing down the toilet

The most straightforward method is to flush the poop down the toilet immediately. It is an effective method if you don’t have a lot of cats and dogs at your home. Keep it simple and set scheduled times throughout the day where you will scoop up the poop and flush it all down the toilet at once, instead of doing so multiple times.

  1. Composting

You can use dog poop and cat litter as manure in your backyard. You can apply the waste as manure if you have a garden with beautiful flowers and trees. The excrement from your dog and cat will eventually decompose, releasing manure onto the plants. This method is ideal if you already have a growing garden bed. Please don’t be shy; it’s more common than you think!

  1. Throwing it in the trash

You can throw the waste into the trashcan. This is a common method for removing your pet’s waste. However, the drawback is that the smell can flood your house, making it extremely uncomfortable. You should take the rubbish to your dumpster as soon as this becomes apparent.

  1. Using a cleaning service

Using a cleaning service is another method of disposing of your pet’s excrement. However, getting a professional to clean and properly remove dog and cat waste under extreme circumstances may be worth it. This prevents bacteria from spreading inside the house where we eat, live and breathe.
