Do you throw it in a resident’s bin on the street, not on their property? Yay or nay?

No, unless I know them and they have said it is OK.

Only if I know the pickup is that day. Otherwise carry to a council bin or home.

Nope. No one wants a strangers dog poo in their bin.
Especially not if the bin is empty, cause then it gets squashed at the bottom of the bin, oozes out like putty, and makes the bin a poo covered disgusting stinking mess. (Speaking from experience, it was our dogs poo, our bin though)

Pre pick-up on bin collection day, maybe (although have never actually done it). Post pick-up, i.e. empty bin, no. They'd have dog poo in their bin for a week. I carry it home in the poo bag and put it in my own.

My dogs don’t poo out and about, they like their privacy ;)  

But I have used wheelie bins for other rubbish when out.

One thing EB has taught me is people are weirdly protective of their bins!!

Eta and people regularly wash their wheelie bins out. That one blew my mind!!

You carry it home and put it in your own bin.

Never - my dog is guaranteed to poo within 30 secs of leaving our house, so I just backtrack and put in on our fence (bins in the backyard) and carry on, sorting out the bag when we get home.

On longer walls where he might have a second go, I've got a bulldog clip thing on the bottom of the handle of my lead, and I'll clip the bag there, waiting for a council bin or until we get home.

Ours is trained to only toilet at home so never had this issue.

I agree with JF that eb and wheelie bins are a recipe for disaster.

We always have room in our bin so it wouldn't phase me in the slightest. If I didn't have a dog I'd possibly feel different.

I carry it home but only because I am afraid there will be a random EBer watching from their front window.
If it is in a sealed bag I can see nothing wrong with putting it in a bin...any bin.

I could not care who puts their pet poo in our bin if it is still on the nature strip as long as it is bagged.


eta...my dog is nearly 18 years old. She poos only when on walks these days...poor love. I usually have 3 bags full in a pretty short walk.

Generally speaking, no. I *might* do it if  (i) I knew the neighbours and they were okay with that AND (ii) if neighbour's bin is out on the footpath AND (iii) said bin was still full (ie. still awaiting council attention)

I will happily throw dog poo in a council/public bin.

But no, I do not generally throw dog poo in other people's bins.

Out on the curb, yep i've done it. People are so weird about their bins. If it is bagged up correctly and the bins are already out for collection, what's the issue? No worse than bags of sh*tty nappies that fill a lot of the bins.

I have no problem with people putting things in mine either. But I think I am in EB minority here on this one.

Gee, I wish you lot walked your dogs near my place! I live in a small block of units - pretty much every other house on the street is a mansion, has big fences, etc. Our place doesn't have gates, and our wheelie bins are stored in the side garden, not too far from the footpath. There is ALWAYS dog poo in our bins 😡.

On the one hand, I'm glad (most) people are picking up their dog's poo...OTOH, since I compost all my food scraps and don't put anything smelly in my bin, it kind of p*sses me off to open the lid and be met with a cloud of stench every time 🤔

Ill join you on that minority.

I bag it up and put it in a bin if its on the curb, or a council bin.. Or if neither are around I carry it home...

I prefer to use a council bin, but on collection day, before collection, then sometimes I’ll put it in someone’s bin. I usually wait till I get to someone’s house that I know has a dog though.

This is what I do as well.

And I am one of those that washes bins with a squirt of detergent & a hose, only takes 5mins...

Nope, we are the same! We use nappy bags to pick up the poo so it's all sealed anyway. If there are no bins around, then we dispose of it at home.

So are people saying if it's sealed in a bag, it won't smell?  Because that's not my experience with cat poo.

ETA Maybe I'm not sealing it properly?

If it’s rubbish day I’ll use a bin on the side of the road. Our bins get collected by 7am so the poo (wrapped up in a bag) won’t be sitting in a bin for very long.

Or I’ll find a public bin/carry it home. Wouldn’t put it into an empty bin though.

Our local community FB group names and shames people who do this .. big no no here lol!

ETA our community also have a huge number of security cameras on their houses so we can’t walk anywhere without fear of being watched and recorded... in case we wanted to do a sneaky bin drop.

Even in a sealed poo bag, dog poo smells. Especially in summer, after a week in a sweaty bin.

It isn't one of the great crimes against humanity, but it seems a bit rude to chuck something smelly in someone else's bin when you must be reasonably close to home (i.e. walking distance, obviously, if you're out with your dog!)

Oh, and I am not unusually precious about my bins, as in don't care if people put stuff in them before collection after they're out on the curb... and have never washed one in my life.

I wouldn't rush out of my house to accost someone if I saw them putting a dog poo bag in my empty, curb-side bin or erect a security camera (bin cam?), but I'd rather they didn't do it.

If the bin is on the curb I throw the bag in.

exactly, it still stinks, even double bagged, and when squished at the bottom of a wheelie bin the bag can burst open.  Its just not somethnig you should put in a random bin.

And if its not a problem to put in someone elses bin, then its obviously not a problem to take it home.  Just pop it in your pocket and bin it when you get home if its so well sealed.

I'm not precious about my bin. If I wanted to deal with dog sh*t,  I'd get a dog.
I'd rather it put in the bin on the curb, then the actions of the old neighbourhood dog walkers who just let their dogs poo on our front grass.

I guess I feel it is an owner's
responsibility to tidy up your animal's waste and ensuring that your animal's waste is only your problem.
If you can do that,  without my bin smelling like poo, fine.  But,  the reality is, if it bursts in the bin , you're not going to be cleaning it. I am.
