Jack & Willy's Compost Pocket
Making the compost pocket was easy, too. Now, Sean and I didn't exactly follow the instructions; we just played it by ear by digging a large hole. But for those of you who are good at following instructions, this is what you need to do:
1. Dig a hole 10 to 15 inches deep and less than 2 feet across.
2. Place pet waste in hole and cover with soil. To ward off pests, make sure you have at least 8 inches of soil cover.
That's pretty much it. The only additional suggestion I have is to use biodegradable doggie bags. I use ones made from cornstarch, which takes about 30 days to biodegrade. Please don't make the mistake of tossing ordinary plastic bags into the compost pocket--bugs don't eat plastic bags made from polyethylene!
