    Sadly all the neighborhood cats use the veg patch to do their business so its not fit to use now.

    Any suggestion on the disposal of what I've scooped up? .... three plant tubs filled.

    Cat poo is rather volatile so I'm really not sure on any safe way.

    Put a little bit in each of those postage paid spam envelopes that keep popping through the door and post it off to them.

    Why on earth do you think cat sh it is any more volatile than any other sh it. Put it in a plastic bag and bin it.

    So cat poo can go in the house hold waste?

    I pity those at the sorting depot who have to separate out all that passes along the convey belt!

    Indeed, I've check the local council website - green bin for pet waste!

    Thanks all!

    Our green bin is for recycling! I can't imagine that would be right. Brown bin is garden waste?

    How about down the toilet? Perhaps not in the quantity you have, but in future? Also, how about dig a hole and bury it?

    Then plant Marigolds around the veg patch to deter them in future.

    Our green bin is for garden waste. Orange sacks for recyclables.

    The bin colours for the local council are

    Green bin- household waste
    Brown bin- garden waste
    Blue bin - all stuff to recycle
    Green box - glass bottles (NOT broken bottles and window glass)

    Green bin is for pet waste!

    ref: spam envelopes
    They go in my compost bins along with the content. They can send as many as they like although I'd prefer non-window type where I have to cut the plastic out first.

    Have you got access to the sewer pipe in your garden? Shove it down there. My mum used to do that with the dog's morning poop.

    From what I've read, its a NO to putting it in the sewer which is the same as flushing down the toilet.

    Cat poo is prone to carrying bacteria which water filtration plants have trouble removing and sometimes can't.

    I've just been googling and can't find anything about not doing it in the UK. Just stuff about not putting cat litter, rather than poo down the loo because it blocks the pipes.

    So no training the cat to do this then?! :)
