Frequently Asked Questions



Q. Can you close the bag after picking up the waste?

If you are far from a trashcan you can fold the bag inward into the frame as shown in the picture below.


This is much easier and more sanitary than trying to tie a knot on a regular poop-filled plastic bag. You can then easily carry the in-folded bag as shown in the next pictures.


Move your mouse over the picture to see how it is done.
