Dog compost bin (not to be used on edible garden): 1. Cut off bottom of bin and drill holes in its walls.  2. Bury to rest about 3in above the soil. 3. Add rocks/gravel to help with drainage. 4. Begin filling with dog poop and secure the lid. 5. After a few days, add septic starter enzyme (find at hardware store) to help with decomposing. Add more every 6 months or so. You can use the resulting compost on flower beds or allow it to remain and slowly seep into the soil.
