    I flush it, but use MCNs during the day and sposies only overnight, so am used to it anyway.

    By the way, I can't answer the poll as it isn't a yes or no question

    Pretty much everything that goes from the wheelie bins to landfill is in plastic bags. I don't think you are allowed unsecured rubbish in the bins.

    ETA from a poster's council link "Please ensure all garbage is bagged or wrapped securely..."

    I have a <1year old, her (disposable) nappy contents are not able to be tipped out into the toilet. Even if they were, there would still be poop present on the nappy.

    I just checked our council guidelines out of curiosity and it doesn't say. It does say nappies are permitted but I'm not sure where else you would put the actual nappy lol!

    Will have to tell DH about the 'no loose vacuum dust' one though, he does that all the time. Oops.

    It's illegal to put it in the bin.
    Really? Wow. I've never heard that before - but a few people seem to have... How is it different from people picking up their dog's faeces in those plastic bags & chucking them in a bin - which is what they're supposed to do? How are dog's faeces less "toxic" than human's?

    I will flush it if it's solid & tips off the nappy into the toilet easily, but if it's squishy... I just wrap it up, tie it in a nappy sack & chuck it in the bin.

    I work in aged care and we chuck soiled adult pads ('nappies') in the bin. no policy on flushing first.
    Sorry to share lol
    But you'd think if it was illegal that it would be in our policies

    Trust good old bubhub to make you feel guilty for something you've never seen ANYONE ever do in the history of anything lol. honestly ive been around a lot of babies been involved with a lot of childcare and ive never once in my life ever seen someone scrape out a disposable nappy. OBVIOUSLY that doesnt mean it doesnt happen im aware of this. But its always bubhub that brings these things to light for me where Im sure I would never encounter them otherwise.

    In saying that I dont scrape and Im not going to. ever.

    Because humans can catch human diseases from another humans poo, but a human cannot catch a disease from a dog, besides say rabies but that's a non issue in Australia. Just like its more dangerous for a human to bite another human than a dog biting a human (disease wise, not damage wise)

    That's simply untrue. Dog faeces carries many zoonotic diseases, ie diseases that can be passed from animals to humans. It's potentially full of such lovelies as a variety of worms (heartworms, whipworms, hookworms, roundworms, tapeworms) as well as lyme disease, giardia and salmonella to name a few.

    Well actually, the chances of catching a zootonic disease from the feaces of a dog is really low compared to catching disease from the feaces of a human. Most zootonic diseases are also spread through contanct from an animal such as scratching, biting, or from parasites that suck blood, and so blood contact etc. It is not usual to get it from the feaces. Also, Lyme disease is a tick born disease? I am not sure if you can get it from the actual animals that a tick infects, you get it from the tick biting you?

    This thread wasn't about the difference in dog poo or human poo anyway.

    Yes bubhub brings up issues that you may have never encounted, but that is because it brings you outside of the square you live in so to speak. I like being educated on different issues that I wouldn't have thought about myself. I am not sure why every one likes to think it is a personal attack?

    I try to flush as many poos as possible.. but can be a bit lazy, so after this thread I am going to try harder! The fact that so many people are saying that they didn't know you were supposed to is a good thing to me... maybe they will try from now on now that they know about it!
