FAQ

Q: Are our bags biodegradable?

FTC Green Guides 2012 requires us to state that if the customary method for trash disposal is sanitary landfill or incineration, as it is in most communities, then any bag labelled biodegradable, degradable, compostable, 38% bio-based, oxo-biodegradable, etc., will have no environmental benefit because the bag will have been burned by incineration or buried in a plastic-lined, sanitary landfill.

So, we make NO CLAIMS, WHATSOEVER, that our bags are biodegradable, or earth-friendly or 'green'. And no other dog waste bag supplier can make any such claims either.

California Disclaimer: California has a specific ASTM 6400 Standard for biodegradable plastic bags. All bags, including competitors', labeled "oxo-biodegradable" do not meet the California ASTM 6400 standard. We do not make any claims regarding our bags in terms of "biodegradable" or "degradable" or "compostable" or in any way imply that the bags will break down in a sanitary landfill or incinerator to any customer in the State of California.

Q: Do your bags fit other dispensers?

A: There are two types of commercial dispensers. The Roll Bag dispenser and the Single Pull Bag dispenser (mitt/header style).

If your bags are on a continuous roll, which requires the user to pull out and tear off at a perforation, then you use the ROLL BAG style. Our Roll Bags are an exact fit for all commercial roll bag dispensers, such as Dogipot, HD Supply/FIDO, Pet Waste Eliminator, etc.


If the bags are FLAT PACKED and hang from 2 rods or prongs inside the dispenser, then you have the 
Single Pull (mitt/header) style. Our Single Pull bag (D021)  fits  other header bag dispensers. Our MITTEN bag (D999) fits Mutt Mitt dispensers.


Q: How many bags do your dispensers hold?

A: Our Roll Bag Dispenser allows 3 rolls (600 bags) at a time to dispense and stores 2 back up rolls inside for a total of 1000 bags! No other standard roll dispenser holds or dispenses more!

Our 
Single Pull Dispenser holds and dispenses 600 header bags at a time. That's 30-50% more bags available to dispense than most competitors Roll Bag dispensers. 

Q: How many bags should I recommend to my customers?

A: That depends on the number of dog owners that will make use of each Dispenser. In a County or City Park setting, usage is 500-2000 bags per month per dispenser. In a Condo/Apartment or HOA setting, plan for 300-800 bags per month. Usage can vary widely however. It is best to have enough supply on hand so that you do not run out and create user inconvenience which results in non-compliance. 


Q: Why are your STATIONS preferred for commercial applications?

A: All our stations and dispensers are made from rust proof, commercial grade aluminum. The posts are powder coated steel. 



Q: Is Installation of a Dog Waste Station easy?

A: Yes. We send complete instructions with each station.  Plus you can always call us if you need any assistance. Allow 30 minutes for installation. No special skills or special tools required (2 adjustable pliers, shovel or post hole digger, a bag of ready-mix cement).

A: All orders received by 5:30 pm ET (2:30 pm PT) are shipped the SAME DAY.

Our
Single Pull Bags are 9-3/4" W x 15" L and fit most mitt/header style dispensers.
