Hey I feel kinda silly asking this, but what do u guys do with ur kitties scooped litter? Do you put it in the bin or throw it in the garden or what? we throw ours in the garden but I think it is getting a bit full now, so Im wondering what to do with it

That is a hard one. I put in plastic bags & in the trash. I feel quite bad for doing it, but I can't think of any other way...

We have a little upstairs porch right off of our bedroom.
I have a small plastic garbage can with a lid sitting out there.
When I scoop the boxes I put the used litter in a plastic bag, tie it shut and put it in that garbage can...which is lined with a kitchen garbage bag.
The garbage man goes on Wednesday morning so when hubby puts the garbage on the curb on Tuesday night I take the bag of used litter, put it in another bag and sit is next to the big can on the curb.

Yeah my two boxes get scooped into plastic bags from the grocery store then put out in the garbage cans in the garage... when I was in college and the dumpsters were a treck from my apartment, I had a little trash can that was devoted to the bags of litter scoopings and I'd empty it when I was taking the rest of my trash to the dumpster... you could start using flushable litter if you like, then the scoopings can just go down the toilet

I also put it in a plastic bag and then when it is time for th garbage to be taken out I put it all in a big garbage bag and take it out.

I used to buy the biodegradable pellets for my old cat and then dump it in the backyard but it got way too expensive. So now I use the regular litter and take it out with my garbage

I don't like using so many plastic bag just because they are so environmentally unfriendly. I've gone to taking canvas bags to the grocery store and I buy the large, tub of kitty litter and use the tub to put litter waste into when it's empty. It's still plastic but maybe a bit less since I dump it into the trash receptacle or dumpster and reuse it a few times. I also often use paper bags since they are biodegradeable. Old fashioned lunch bags work fine for me and they are cheap. Another thing I've done is put it in a cardboard box. Of course when you use cardboard boxes, you have to take it out right away so nothing soaks through. Just some ideas...

I use the wood pellets and it just goes in the trash with the rest.
