    Well the council then.

    I'd much rather them fix the potholes in my street then snoop through my garbage.

    Yup, and when your children are paying their rates, they will be complaining that the council really need to clean up the poo in the water and soil!!!

    Human poo biodegrades in a couple of years and unless you're living on a landfill site, I doubt council workers are gonna find poo under the bitumen Have a squiz at info on compost toilets - while it's "treated" better, it still takes the same among of time to break down.

    I bag it and bin it. DSs poos are gross & squishy so even if I scraped (insert puke emoticon here) half of it would still be stuck to the nappy. I feel more guilt over using sposies than putting poo in the bin. The sposies will take a gazillion times longer to break down than the poo.

    I plan to flush using liners. I've done it before when babysitting and it hasn't been an issue. I dread having a stinky bin!

    Fair point. Could also be applied to the statements about it ending up in our waterways or under bitumen

    When I tried MCN's I had a heap of flushable liners so when I went back to disposable I continued using them and flushing what I could. As DD is still mainly milk diet they are not solid and the disposable still ends up pooey.

    Oh. Then my answer should have been that I don't know

    Presumably it breaks down but takes longer because it's not exposed to the air. But I don't actually know.

    Flush. I don't like how it smells out the bin, and it is shocking in landfill. Not sure about other brands, but it says to flush it on the side of the Huggies box.

    PS: If you use cloth you can buy flushable nappy liners.

    I'm mostly an MCN user, but in the event of a poop in a sposie, yep, I tip it in the loo.

    I guess I'm used to dealing with cloth, so it doesn't seem too bad.
