S. Australia pet owners find win-win solution

Updated: Jun 24, 2023

An innovative group of dog lovers from Port Elliot, South Australia, teamed up with pet researcher Dr. Janette Young from the University of South Australia in 2019.

The team devised a 12-week project to trial green waste collection at their local dog park, survey dog owner attitudes, behaviors and poo practices, and educate pet owners about compostable bags and home composting.

In collaboration with Alexandrina Council, compostable dog bags were provided at the park along with a dedicated poo bin, picked up weekly by a green organic truck.
