Sorry another dog poo posting!
- Sarah (12th Jan 2019 @ 17:10:31)

Today I had the pleasure of picking up 126 used poo bags from along the short stretch of footpath that starts near Silent garden and heads up to Bohunt estate (plus numerous cans, sweet wrappers, crisp packets....)
Many of the bags had been there for months and were partly buried by soil, while the poo had desiccated the plastic was still going strong.
I particularly liked the bags that had been thrown artfully into trees and bushes to create a nice plastic decoration.
If you pick up your poo great, but then take the bag home, don't throw it into a bush to sit there for decades if not centuries, unless some mug like me picks up after you.

Sorry, you had to do this, but thank you for taking it upon yourself to do. Well done.

I've often wondered why dog poo bags are not biodegradable, like the ones used for food waste.

Most dog poo bags are biodegradable. Only the very cheep ones don't.
I use biodegradable bin bags too.

Well done for being so kind and picking up all the mess you did, you are a little star xxx

As a fellow litter-picker I too cannot understand the chucked poo bags. Why bother picking it up just to drop it again? I suppose it stops people treading in it, but still seems pretty stupid to me.

Should we sign Liphook up for the Great British Spring Clean ?

There are multiple dog waste bins around Liphook, I didn't actually realise how many until this winter when I stopped using the field mentioned here.

Surely if there was a dog waste bin at the entrance to the footpath that leads to the fields many of us use for dog walks, it would solve the problem. I guess there will always be some odd people, but I think most would use the bin...

Ryan I approached the council about putting a bin at the start of the path but as the road is not adopted they wouldn't help, would not even put up signage requesting people dispose of poo appropriately, still couldn't help....
Apparently there is a bin at the Portsmouth Road junction, not much help......
