Behold the Power of Poop - Behold the power of poop

Continuing with the poop discussion...

The issue of composting pet poop has long been debated. Ideally, you are not supposed to do it, as most homeowners' compost piles do not reach a temperature high enough to sufficiently destroy the pathogens which might exist in pet feces. I have done it, but made sure to only use the resulting compost on non-food crops.

I also have one of these thingees, but with two big, poop-productive dogs, it filled up too quickly and decomposed poop too slowly.

Now, unfortunately, I just bag it up and put it in the trash each week.

Hopefully, San Fran will come up with something innovative and successful, and will pass it along to other cities.
