    Bin full of dog poo

    I just found a nasty surprise left for me in the garden of the flat I'm renovating. Not only is the kitchen full of dog hair, but my tenant has kindly saved up all his used poo bags in a rickety plastic dustbin in the garden.

    I can't even put this out for the bin men, as they only take stuff in wheely bins.

    How can I transfer it without getting it on me?

    By the way, do I allow pets?

    Not from now on!

    Do you have his new address?? If not now you will (Facebook etc,,, tracing agents,.....) at some point in the next few months.

    I would be extremely inclined to store it & deliver it kindly to his front door when you can find him: He'll be so pleased to get his property back....

    Raise dispute over deposit...

        Double bin liner to put it in, disposable vinyl gloves and a set of clothes that you change out of and put straight in the wash at home.
        And it's 10 disgusting minutes.

        As a dog owner, I'd ideally wait for a very frosty morning, as that reduces the horror by 25%.

          Ive just got possession of my house back from a bunch of dirty * , low and behold, the green wheely bin is 80% full of dog eggs. They did not think it was necessary to bag it though, its literally 400L of ***** ! I have not got a clue what im going to do, might sprinkle some grass clippings over the top and leave it out for re-cycling.... anyhoo, just thought I would let you know your not alone !

          This is a beautiful cottage type victorian terraced house that overlooks the countryside, so I thought allowing dogs would be OK - Ive had my faith in human nature rattled a bit by these tenants. Insult to injury (the injury being the thousands of unpaid rent) - they have changed my electric and gas meters to pre-pay, and even used up the 'emergency' tenner credit on the meter before they moved out, so I had to pay £20 in asda for elecy just for the honor of hoovering up after them

            Welll if you don't fancy doing any of the suggestions how about getting one of those firms in who deal in hazardous waste or the council may assist - it will cost but at least it takes it off your hands (so to speak).

                Take photos and send them to Shelter, Citizen Advice Bureaux and the MPs who had nothing nice say about Landlords during the debate on Revenge Evictions.

                  Tomorrow is bin day, so today I suited up with rubber gloves and eye protection.

                  It turned out only the top quarter of the bin was dog bombs. Below that was soaking wet composted shrub clippings, and below that were several holdalls, and a blanket.

                  The dog bombs are now in the bin along with the blanket & bags, and the clippings are waiting for next week's green collection.

                  I'm still not allowing pets from now on though.

                    That's disgusting and unfortunate. It now makes you think every dog owner is alike. That would be a sweeping statement and very unfair. It would be like having a bad experience with a male/female/black/white/indian etc landlord and then never trusting that type of landlord again. Each person is an individual and should be treated as such. I have seen some nasty living condition of non pet owners, where would that leave you if you judged all potential renters based on that experience. In response to my posting. I have already stated that I pick up immediately my very small dog does anything and it's disposed of. My neighbour who has permission does not, just picks it up when it gets a bit much. How do you differentiate between who would be responsible or not? Some pet owners do have filthy habits. But they probably don't have good habits anyway.

                        In the good old days JK0 you could have flogged the contents to tanners.... (makes you wonder about what's been in/on that nice leather in your shoes/boots/trousers/jacket....) under the wonderful name of "Pure"

                        Whilst this job may not sound particularly gruesome, what we have here is a classic example of good old fashioned Victorian euphemistic thinking. A pure collector actually collected dog faeces from the streets and sold it on to tanners for use in the leather making process. Dog faeces was a major component in the leather making process, but we will get to that in a moment…
