    In the bin. There was a point there where he was doing solid poops and I flushed it then, but more often than not it goes in the bin.

    I always flush. Unless he has the runs, then it's straight to the bin!

    We put them in the bin. Same with used condoms, dirty bandaids, dog poo in poop bags from our walks, dirty tissues, the list goes on. I don't know what else we would do with all of those

    If the poo is slushy(SORRY TMI) I put it in a nappy sack and it goes in the bin.
    If the poo is hard i put it in the toliet, flush then the nappy goes in a nappy sack and in the bin.

    We use cloth, so I'm used to scraping and flushing, so on the odd occasion we use a sposie I just do the same.

    None of my friends who use sposies flush, it's all straight in the bin.

    I've heard that it's illegal to put faeces in the bin plenty of times, but can't actually find any evidence of this.

    If anyone could link to something reputable I would really appreciate it.

    It goes in the bin. Same as the dog poo I pick up from the back yard. I aint ever flushing that down the toilet so I dont see the point of doing nappies.

    My council laughed when I was asked them about it. They said "how would we police it" to which I replied "I would happily pay the fine if you paid someone to search through the 35 or so nappy bags in my bin for the week". Good luck getting someone to do that job.

    Looking at my local waste services website I can find plenty of information on batteries and computers, nothing on faeces.

    If it's illegal, wouldn't it also be illegal to dispose of dog poo in the bins at the park? Yet this is encouraged.

    I suspect this has been exaggerated...
