Expert offers Eco-friendly Solution to dispose of Dog Waste. Pet owners continue to embrace the eco-friendly trend with new waste disposal products. People love their dogs…just not the waste they leave behind. Statistics indicate there are 9.1 million dogs in South Africa and they create a lot of waste every day.
The average dog owner typically puts the waste in a plastic bag and dumps it in the trash, which ends up in over-crowded landfills where it takes plastic bags over 200 years to decompose. A recent study showed that almost four percent of the landfills are pet waste.
Some dog owners have attempted to compost the waste, but the parasites and bacteria found in dog waste have been found to be harmful to others.
Dog septic tanks are another option, but these septic tanks need chemicals or enzymes to break down the waste, which takes time and effort to buy and then bury.
Still, other dog owners don’t pick up the waste at all, thinking it will decompose and absorb back into the ground or use it for compost. The waste is washed into storm drains when it rains and ends up in bays and drinking water. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the US estimates that two days worth of dog waste from about 100 dogs can create enough pollution to close a bay and all the watersheds within 32km. To many dog owners, it may seem like there is no “green” and safe way to dispose of their dog’s waste. However, some people have discovered an eco-friendly solution to dispose of the poo: The Pet Poo Drain. The drain fits unto your home’s sewer above ground 90 degree bent pipe so that the dog waste can be deposited directly into the sewer, much like when you flush the toilet.
According to Johan Olivier, inventor of the Pet Poo Drain, using it is as simple as 1-2-3:
- Locate your sewer/septic drain 90-degree bent pipe and remove inspection cap – usually located at toilet outlet on the outside of your home.
- Fit the Pet Poo Drain to sewer/septic 90-degree bent pipe.
- Place waste in the Pet Poo Drain cylinder and rinse down with a hose if necessary.
Yes, you can flush the poo down an outside toilet or for that matter inside toilet also but that is yet again a waist of 15 liters of precious water every time you flush when you can dispose of it directly into the sewer system which is designed to carry waste by means of a combination of suction and water to sewer farms by using our Pet Poo Drain.
People love their dogs, but they don t love the mess that their dogs leave behind. Most people collect their dog waste in plastic bags and dump it in their trash can. This results in a smelly trash can and, more importantly, the waste ends up in our over-crowded landfills where it takes the plastic bag over 200 years to decompose! Even if you can live with the smelly trash can, consider this: there are 9.1million dogs in South Africa and they create millions of tons of waste every year. More disturbing is the dog waste that is not picked up and is absorbed into the ground or washed down our storm drains. It seeps into and contaminates our drinking water and borehole water. Think about that the next time you take a cold drink out of your faucet or the next time you take a refreshing shower! Now there is a solution – The Pet Poo Drain! The Pet Poo Drain easily attaches to your sewer/septic drain 90-degree elbow pipe where the dog waste is deposited directly into the sewer line where waste belongs. The Pet PooDrain requires no assembly and it installs in 3 easy steps.
The Pet Poo Drain is aiming in becoming a popular option to get rid of dog waste because it is deposited into a place designed for waste: the sewer line. Sewers and waste treatment plants treat the bacteria and parasites found in both human and dog waste. The Pet Poo Drain gives dog owners an eco-friendly way to dispose of dog waste. “With the Pet Poo Drain, the waste does not end up in our landfills or in our local water supply. As research has sowed us it was imperative to us to find a dog clean-up solution that was effective and still safe for waterways It’s a safe and cleaner way to get rid of the poop, and it is more friendly to our environment, pets and people.
