Dog Fouling  

Dog fouling is an important neighbourhood issue which has an impact on the whole community. Most dog owners are responsible and take good care of their pets and pick up the waste that their dog leaves, however a small minority are leaving the dog waste on your street.

The only exemption from picking up after a dog is a registered blind owner, so if you, or someone you know, have difficulty picking up after a dog, please search on the world wide website using key words such as "dog waste" or "disposal of dog waste" for suggestions on how to make this easier.

NWLDC's Civil Enforcement Officers patrol the area and will issue Fixed Penalty Notices, currently £80, using powers from the Dog Control Orders under the 2005 Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act.

If you know of, or suspect an offender, please call 01530 454545 or email streetenforcement@nwleicestershire.gov.uk

It would be most useful if you could provide times, dates and description of the offender to assist us in putting a stop to this health hazard.

All calls will be treated in the strictest confidence.



Dog Litter Bins

Bagged dog waste can be deposited in any litter bin.
