As a side note, if your city allows pet waste as compost, you (may) need compostable bags, which these are not.

But the Costco ones are scented and biodegradable. And your finger doesn't poke through the bag giving you that uncomfortably moist warmth that you instantly regret.

I just use the old produce bags after I'm finished with them.
Saves me money and having to put extra plastic into the landfills.
Sometimes I even grab the loose bags at the store laying in shopping carts, baskets, etc to use as poop bags. There are so many strewn around now with people using them as barriers in their baskets, etc.

Sorry to be negative, but that just motivates you to keep using plastic bags. Reusable bags for groceries and biodegradable waste bags would make the most difference.

Do these biodegrade even in a regular landfill and not a compost-specific processing facility?

We often throw our bags into public park garbage cans which are with regular trash and plastic bags. If they're going in a non compostable bag in a landfill, wouldn't make much difference if they won't biodegrade in a special facility.

Appears the enhanced ones are actually cheaper too per bag. Thanks for pointing it out!

I bought a box of these “Enhanced” ones a while back and I can't see anything about "biodegradable'' on the box or package.
The all time low for these bags is $10.18

An even better deal is when walking your dog, he poops, use one bag.

Then take two bags from the community doggy bag container as spares. Eventually you'll have lots of spare bags for times you're not near the free bag container.

If you think that's theft - ever had your dog poop more than once on a walk? Mine did... Always 6 or more poops per walk.

Anyway, just sharing what we did. Worked out well, and only had to buy bags once. The rest came along for free!

Hey so I had this great debate with some friends of ours in the neighbourhood.

Dog bags that say biodegradable, take up to a year to breakdown, and that's if their claims are even true. Tossing a biodegradable bag into the trash, means it goes into a landfill anyways, and can take as long as a regular plastic to breakdown.

Some people think leaving poop on grass is amazing fertilizer, it isn't, especially if it isn't placed in a compost. Leaving it around just spreads bacteria everywhere. Have you stepped in it before? yea... not pleasant either.

You may also think that tossing it into your green bin means that your city will automatically transform it into soil for plants, but you should check with your city and see if they actual have the processes and plants for doing so. The compost created by dog poop cannot be used to grow food or be placed near water (rivers/lakes/etc) as they contain lots of pantheons as well as bacteria and parasites. Now, if you decide to create a compost bin/heap at home, then there are lots of guides out there to follow, but again, can't be used for anything but flower beds. Maintaining and turning over the compost heap while creating high temperature is key, so it can kill some of the bacteria. If not, that compost should be kept away from puppies, kids and pregnant women, as they can contain roundworms (google it) and other fun stuff. Bottom line is, if you want healthy compost, you should have a healthy pet at home as well.

You can use flushable bags, which again, you need to call your city's waste water department and see if they have a system in place for those things.

Paper bags are a great idea... until you own a 60lb dog and need to do a two-handed grab of their poop and realize how permeable paper can be at times. But this is a great option for your green bin/composter.

Bottom line, some people have a pets; love them and want to do your part, and the best thing is to at least pick up the crap and NOT TOSS IT IN YOUR NEIGHBOUR'S GARBAGE/GREEN BIN. Glad everywhere here is looking at bags period.
eh...
