Default Pooper Pail

I wanted to share this idea with everyone. After years of fighting with plastic grocery bags collapsing just as I get my pooper scooper ready to dump, my husband came up with this solution. It is an ice cream bucket. He cut the bottom out and screwed hooks on the side. I simply slip a grocery bag inside and attach the handles of bag over the hooks. It stays open and allows for easy dumping. I just carry it around to different areas where I have a clean up and it makes a yucky job not so bad.

Now that's an idea. We have a small rubbish (or garbage if you prefer ) bin with clips to keep the lid on, into which I put double bin-liners and when at a certain level, this gets pulled out and tied, and deposited in the local dog pooh bins. Works for us. And we use long-handled pooper scoopers.

You're not wrong re living in the sticks having this kind of advantage. We used to scoop and pitch when we were out in the country - in the Summer, the bugs used to break most of it down although it wasn't so good in Winter. We did have acreage however, otherwise I'd have been mindful of flies.

Its about 50--60 feet to "mount Norman." It breaks down pretty fast from april to october. Slower rest of the year depending on temp and rainfall. Not to many problem with bugs. Summertime prevailing wind direction blows bugs and odors away from the house.

Much easier to collect deposits in winter when they are solid.
