SKDC is reminding dog owners that waste from their pets can be deposited in litter bins in South Kesteven – as long as it is bagged.

New litter bins around the district now carry the message ‘dog waste accepted’ encouraging owners to use the bins as long as the waste is in a bag.

SKDC’s portfolio holder for healthy environment, Coun Nick Craft said: “We know rules vary from district to district in Lincolnshire so the new bins carry a message reminding dog owners they can use litter bins for their pet waste.

“Our Environmental Health team work with and educate dog owners on their responsibilities so they are aware of the issues and dangers of not picking up after a dog in a public place.

“We want everyone to enjoy our public open spaces and leave highways and paths free of mess, litter or fly-tipping.”

Residents and businesses wishing to report dog fouling should call 01476 40 60 80 or email ehs@southkesteven.gov.uk
