I am a dog owner, can I place my dog waste into normal litter bins?

Yes - please ensure the waste is in a bag before putting it into the bin. 

Remember - you can buy your dog bags from the Council.

What is the legislation?

The Borough Council has adopted the Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act 2005 and implemented Dog Control Orders to assist officers when dealing with inconsiderate dog owners. Residents who fail to clean up after their dogs  are committing an offence and if caught will be issued a fine of £80, payable within 14 days. Refusing to pay could lead to prosecution, which if successful could result in a fine of up to £1,000.
