Bayside Council is trialling Dog Poo Recycling Bins at off-leash dog parks and reserves for the community to responsibly discard dog poo.
The bio-degradable bags available on-site and dog poo will be combined with food waste from Council buildings to produce good quality soil, with the assistance of thousands of compost worms.
The first bin was installed at Bonar Park, Sans Souci.
In the next few weeks the following sites will have a new Dog Poo Recycling Bin for the community to use at Sheppard Street Reserve, Bardwell Valley; Kingsgrove Avenue Reserve, 15 Kingsgrove Avenue, Kingsgrove; Civic Avenue Reserve (Scarborough Park), Kogarah; and the fenced portion of Bona Park, 46 Sandringham Street, Sans Souci
Other bins will be installed at Astrolabe Park, Daceyville, Firmstone Reserve, Pagewood; Hayden Place in Sir Joseph Banks Park; Gaiarine Gardens, Pagewood; and Sparks Reserve, Mascot.
