If you use a plastic bag to remove dog poo then please take the bag away and put it in the bin. On Sunday I counted 14 plastic bags along the Greenway at Offchurch in various states of decomposition.
Leaving litter of any sort is wrong, plastic bags of dog poo particularly so.
If for any reason you can’t or won’t take the bag away then the National Trust says it is better to ‘stick and flick’.
In other words, don’t bag it, but move the offending article into a nearby clump of nettles.
