Are your dog waste bags truly Biodegradable?

Can you imagine this? The amount of diverted dog waste for processing is predicted to be in the range of between 150 and 400 tonnes every year, just in the City of Vancouver, BC alone with potential for further increases beyond that. The dog population in Vancouver is anticipated between 32,000 and 55,000. The unbelievable amount of dog poop handled by City waste collection through numerous waste collection streams is expected to be between 1,400 and 6,900 tonnes roughly with nearly 400 tonnes of this waste flowing through our park litter stream.

Now Imagine this ... all that Dog waste is primarily being picked up with plastic non-biodegradable poop waste bags. That’s a Sh!tload of plastic waste. It’s also a lot of Dog waste entombed plastic bags thrown into landfills never to biodegrade. People need to have a better understanding of if their poop bags are genuinely biodegradable; we’ve created an easy graphic to explain.
