Doggie Dunnies

We’ve recently installed some 'Doggie Dunnies' which are specifically designed to capture compostable bags of dog waste. These bins are collected by our food organics, garden organics (FOGO) trucks to send for composting, diverting it from landfill.

You can find Doggie Dunnies in the following locations:

  • Piney Lakes dog exercise area off Sinclair Crescent in Winthrop
  • Foreshore dog exercise area off Burke Drive in Attadale

Read more about Doggie Dunnies.

To use the Doggie Dunnies, follow these steps:

  1. Tie the compostable dog bag first and then slide it into the front baffle
  2. Follow the maze
  3. Drop the bag into the centre of the bin at the end of the maze
