If you allow your dog to foul in a public place without cleaning up the mess, you are committing an offence and could be fined £50.
If you don’t pay this fine, we can take you to court where the fine could increase to up to £500.
Remember, always pick up your dog waste and put it in the nearest litter bin.
You can use any plastic bag and any litter bin, including your black bin at home. Don't put dog waste in your blue or brown bins as this can contaminate them.
