Dog Fouling

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.

Bag It and Bin It!
  • 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
Check out the Dogs Trust website for more information on dog fouling.
