You guys might recall that we reviewed the Litter Locker pet waste disposal system over a year ago.
The refills for the Litter Genie are not only expensive, but also do not last terribly long. There is a lot of plastic waste too – even pulling off plastic thing that reveals the continuous bag underneath.
Litter Genie Refill Alternative
A YouTube subscriber commented on one of our videos saying that he had tried an alternative. So I bought them to try them out. He said they are less expensive and also last longer (longer bag).
The FIRIK Litter Genie and Litter Locker alternative refills for the bags are the same ones you use for the Litter Genie – which we have also had. So you can use the same refills in both the Litter Genie and Litter Locker.
They are compatible with Litter Genie Standard and Litter Genie Plus pail disposal systems, but DO NOT FIT Litter Genie XL.
This is them – FIRIK Refill Cassette Litter Genie Refills Compatible with Litter Genie Standard Refill Cartridge for Cat Litter Disposal System Pail – they come in a 4-pack and what I liked the most about them is that the bag is easy to pull out from the cartridge.
It is sooo easy to start the bag – there is a little white sticker and a small portion of the bag that stick out – so you know exactly where to pull from to get the continuous bag started without fearing you are going to pull out a whole bunch you don’t need, which happens with the Litter Genie refills. That’s one of my biggest struggles with the Litter Genie branded ones.
Like the Litter Genie refills, they lock in odor and are durable – there are 7 layers that work together to help to lock in the smell.
Each FIRIK refill cartridge has a 21-foot long bag which lasts up to 12 weeks for 1 cat. So, 4 refills will up to 12 months for 1 cat (of course, this is a wee bit subjective since a cat, in kidney failure for example, will have more pee waste than one without it – and a cat on a dry food diet will have smaller pee clumps than one on a wet food diet – so it will always vary slightly).
The FIRIK refill cartridge is 7 Ft longer than the Litter Genie refills.
Litter Locker Refill Alternative
These also work on the Litter Locker Plus that we reviewed some time ago now – both cassettes fit in both cat litter disposal systems – so whether you are in the USA, Canada or Europe, these should work for your needs.
Here is a video that shows all of this:
Another option that I talk about in the video – EcoLeo Refills_ Litter Genie, Litter Champ and Litter Locker Compatible Eco-Friendly, Plastic-Free, Compostable, Durable, Replaces Cartridges (Equals 4-Pack of Name Brand)
