Evidently because I have too much cat shit...in a double-wrapped industrial trash bag...in my front yard.

I have two cats. They're big cats. Google image search "Maine Coon" for more information.

For their litter box, I got a concrete mixing tub from Home Depot and I fill it with 50 lbs of litter. This lasts them for about a month. When it needs changed, I just dump the whole damn tub into a giant industrial-strength trash bag.

Well this last time, I waited two cycles before I put it out front for the trash guys. The bag was excessively heavy. My roommate and I estimated it at approximately 200 lbs, mostly absorbed water weight.

So we double bag it and wrestle the bag outside. I come home from work today and the bag is still there!

Then I find this on the local Sanitation Department's website:



So looks like i am getting reported to the local Health Department.

All I know is I am not moving that fuckin bag...

Canton huh? Glad I got out of there when I did. About two seconds after I graduated HS. If my parents would move I'd never have to go back.

You don't want to move the bag again because it's too heavy but you expect the trash guys to pick up a 200 lb trash bag full of used cat litter?



Dude, spring for some scoopable cat litter and clean the box from time to time.
Link Posted: 9/17/2009 5:56:41 PM EST
Mearly for the sake of the waste collectors you could have split it into two bags.

Neighbors of mine had a trashcan full of gravel (gravel for God's sake) sitting in front of their house for several months apparently in the hopes the trashman would collect it. Can't fathom what they were thinking.

It doesn't smell at all...the bad is sealed off, and I use good litter, never smell a damn thing.

LOL!

A few weeks ago I put out a bag that weighed about 90 pounds. I felt so bad for the guy who was going to heft it like it was nothing, I put a note in/on the bag that said VERY HEAVY.

I had to carry it out like a sack of groceries, because when I tried to pick it up like normal, the bag started tearing.

200 pounds is ridiculous.
Give the guy a break and split it in half.

Reading is fundamental.

50 lbs of litter at a time...one cycle was about 3 weeks or so...into the bag, tied off.

Next 50 lbs of fresh litter...another three weeks, then that went into the bad.

ETA: I got people over here all the time, and they have never said anything. They bitch about everything else, but not any smell.

This sounds like a news story ending with the phrase: "...All 73 cats were removed from the house, and the lady was taken to the nervous hospital".

Can't you just change small amounts of the litter at a time, so you could use smaller and lighter bags that no one would be upset about?

Or does it all have to be changed at once?

they won't take bags that big and shouldn't have to. I don't know how exactly you thought trash collection would pick up a 200LB PLASTIC BAG....


If I were them I would attempt to lift the bag knowing full well it would split wide open. Then I would leave a 200lb mound of piss-saturated litter on your yard and laugh about it later in the breakroom with the guys.
Link Posted: 9/17/2009 6:02:04 PM EST
This had the potential to be as good as the Ryan's steakhouse story, but the bag didn't break. Oh well.
Link Posted: 9/17/2009 6:02:05 PM EST
Do the decent thing and split the 200 lbs so the garbage men don't get a hernia lifting up cat shit.

These are big cats...if I don't use the large tub, they kick the litter all over the damn place. I don't like dealing with the shit directly so I just dump the whole thing at once.

Here's an idea of how big they can get:

Using a clumping litter and scooping it out every day, the box rarely needs more cleaning. Just add litter as needed.

I don't have Maine Coons, but I have 3 cats using one litter box. I scoop it twice a day and dump the clumps into the trash. With the deodorizers in the litter and the drying action, there's little if any smell.

Just googled Maine Coon. Those are huge cats. You should post pics.

My suggestion would be to get a small trash can with a tightly sealing lid, place a bag in it and daily scoop the feces and urine clumps out and when the bag is full toss it to the curb. Your cats will appreciate not having to dance around piss biscuits and turds when relieving themselves.

ETA: I scoop twice a day for my cats and they know what times I scoop because they both use the litter box after I clean it.

I wouldn't touch that either. Why don't you dispose of it in a timely manor and not have so much at a time? Surely they pick up your garbage more then once a month?

Yeah, I'd say that's a well-deserved citation.

200lbs of cat shit and litter, and you expect the trash guys to deal with it? Jesus fuck.

Apollos, listen to Seabee. You can't abuse the garbage collector like that!

While it will suck, break up the bag into < 50 lb portions and they will haul it off.

Be very nice to garbage collectors. They are one of the few people in this world that can make your life miserable.

I know this may be a weird concept, but, you ever think of maybe cleaning the litter box out every day? Jebus Christ dude.
I have two cats, one over 20 lbs, and one around 18lbs, and I have two litter boxes in my basement. I clean them every day.
Link Posted: 9/17/2009 6:52:56 PM EST
So basically you created a system whereby you collect an entire month of cat shit, rather than a regular litter box that needs to be changed frequently?

Instead of being lazy and doing it once a month, get a regular litter box and change it when it's full, and you'll never have a 200 pound bag of shit in your yard again.

Find the closest ACORN office and deliver it to their door. Leave a note on it that says "with all the shit you're in right now, a little more won't hurt".
