What do I need to do to compost dog waste?

    Mix it in with your compost bin, and it will naturally compost with everything else. It’s also good to mix in grass clippings, ashes, vegetable waste, fish bones (but avoid meat), and most other organic waste. I would avoid acidic things like oak leaves, as they could over-acidify the soil. The key to good compost is the proper blend of ingredients.

    Composting your dog waste is a great way to reduce the environmental impact of your pet.

    Here are step-by-step poop composting instructions from plantea.com:
    1. Take and old garbage can and drill a dozen or so holes in the side.
    2. Cut out the bottom (A keyhole saw works great for this.)
    3. Dig a hole in the ground, deep enough for the garbage can.
    4. Toss some rocks or gravel in the hole for drainage and position the garbage can so it’s a little higher than the soil level.
    5. Place the lid on top (you might want to paint it with something like Dog Waste Composter.)
    6. When you scoop some poop, put it in the hole and sprinkle in some septic starter (available at hardware stores) and add some water.
