DOG POO!

07 May 2020

UPDATE

Many residents in Kirkby Malzeard and Laverton have noticed an increased amount of dog poo fouling the back lanes and the roads out of the villages. 

If you want to complain, please telephone the Dog Warden at HBC.

You can leave a general complaint with Customer Services.

If you have a specific person/dog you want to report, you can leave contact details with HBC Customer Services and the Dog Warden will respond within 10 working days. 

Call:  01423 500600

Complaints will be dealt with anonymously.

The Dog Warden also has a facebook page for information:
www.facebook.com/HBClostdogs

The Dog Warden would strongly encourage residents to use the telephone reporting method to complain rather than to name and shame on face book.
 


 
You can put bagged dog poo in any litter bin, including your own rubbish bin at home.

If the dog poo bin is full, please don't pile bags of poo on top - that is just disgusting for the people who have to empty it.

 Here's a message from Keep Britain Tidy
 

Dog mess is the most unacceptable and offensive type of litter on our streets. Our research tells us that dog fouling is the issue the public are most concerned about.

Dog fouling is not only deeply unpleasant, it is dangerous. Whilst rare, contact with dog excrement can cause toxocariasis – a nasty infection that can lead to dizziness, nausea, asthma and even blindness or seizures.

It’s no wonder dog fouling is such a problem – there are estimated to be more than 8 million dogs producing more than 1,000 tonnes of mess every day in the UK alone.

While most dog owners are caring, responsible individuals, there are still some people who do not clean up after their pets. 

Anyone who fails to clear up after their dog can be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice of up to £100. If the case goes to court this could cost the owner or person in charge of the animal up to £1,000.

The law states that being unaware a dog has fouled or not having a suitable bag is not a reasonable excuse.

If someone does fail to clean up after their pet, it falls to the council to get rid of it. More than 90% of councils have dog wardens.
