The public is starting to take a real interest in alternatives to plastic bags, which means that Councils are frequently getting asked questions like:

  • “But how will I collect my dog’s poo if there are no plastic bags?”
  • “Compostable bags aren’t plastic right?”
  • “Can I compost my dog poo at home now I’ve got compostable bags?”

WasteMINZ has compiled a factsheet to help you answer queries and make decisions about whether or not to encourage the use of compostable dog poo bags, some alternatives to using any kind of bags, and examples of what councils are doing around the country.
