Pet Waste Composting

Pet Waste Composting

The benefits of using a composting system to deal with your pet waste are:

  • a reduction in the number of plastic bags you use
  • the diversion of pet waste away from landfill
  • a simple no-fuss system that eliminates odour
  • it is a discreet inground system – only the lid is above ground level
  • it returns carbon and microbes to the soil and helps enrich your garden

In early 2018, Willoughby City Council ran a trial of a Pet Waste Composting System. The trial results are below. Due to the success of the trial, Council is now subsidising the cost of the pet waste systems (including free delivery) through the Compost Revolution Website

Key Points
