The future of dog waste bins - and how to segregate problematic waste to ensure diversion from landfill
Over the last few months our most popular social media posting has been concerning these newly designed dog waste bins - and it's easy to see why...! The benefits to be had are huge - both environmentally and socially.
The design is a fun and easy way to dispose of the dreaded bag of poo. In a nutshell, users bag their pet's poop, give the bag a twist, and thread the bag's neck through the inwardly spiraling trackway on top of the bin. Once the end of the spiral is reached, simply let go of the bag! Also incorporated is a biologically degradeable dog waste bag dispenser: take one empty; bring it back full.
One major problem with current dog waste disposal bins are that they fill up way to early with other forms of domestic rubbish. Often leading to pet owners being unable to deposit their pet's waste, and resulting in litter problems stemming from bagged dog waste.
In addition, there is increasing pressure to divert biodegradable municipal waste from landfill sites. In the UK the dog population creates over ONE MILLION tonnes of poo annually - this clever device would ensure that we divert this problematic waste away from landfill, and improve our collective environmental performance....a win-win scenario all round.
