Dog Poo Composter !

Here we show how we made a dog poo composter using reclaimed materials 

First Darrel digs the hole.....(about 8 ft)
A layer of hardcore is added to aid drainage and dispersal of composted matter

Then 10mm holes were drilled around the sides of the plastic water barrel.
A hole was cut out of the top to accommodate the 6" pipe, fastened around the edges with 'L' brackets
(the bottom of the barrel has no bottom by the way)

The poo composter is then lowered into the ground

and backfilled.......

And here we have it ! Our exciting new dog poo composter.

Sacks / bags must not be used, as it prevents the composter from working efficiently, scoops are provided
