    Default Nappy bins, essential item or waste of money?

    You need proof that human waste carries bacteria and disease and should be flushed rather than put in the bin?? Really? That's just common sense.

    I just had a look on my local council's website and it says you can put 'nappies' in the general waste bin. It didn't specify whether they could have poop in them or not, but I would think it would mention it if it weren't allowed.

    You've said it's illegal. I've seen many people make this claim on BH, but they never substantiate it. I can't find any such proof myself, which leaves me to assume that everyone who says it has just read it on a forum and never followed up on it.

    Pet waste carries bacteria and disease, food scraps carry bacteria and disease, so the logic doesn't follow. By all means say that in your opinion it's a bad idea, but telling people it's against the law is another thing altogether.

    My bad, not trying to create a scuffle just want people to think twice before throwing poo in the bin. I can't "prove" that it's illegal and don't care to waste my time looking through the laws in Australia. I retract my earlier statement - and replace it with "I have heard it is illegal"

    Is that better?

    Much better, thank you!

    I will then reply with "I have heard that it is not illegal", but I welcome advice to the contrary

    I think it's gross to throw poo in the bin. If it sits in the outside bin all week it will attract maggots surely, which are filthy argh...! I flush the cat poo and baby poo..

    I pick up the dog poo the day before bin day and always bag it (actually double bag it most of the time) before binning it. Doesnt have time to smell out my bin or get maggots.

    I thought cat poo was the only thing not meant to be flushed because of toxoplasmosis ?
