What kind of bags should I use for pet waste?
Cochrane's organics collection program accepts pet waste as long as it is in compostable bags. Most of the pet shops in Cochrane carry white earth rated poop bags marked "Certified ASTM D6400" but do not have the "certified compostable" logo. After checking with the Town's compost facility, they have told us these bags are approved for use at their facility. Local pet suppliers are aware that these are the only poop bags approved for Cochrane's program, in addition to other "certified compostable" (with logo) bags.
