Dog Waste – please take yours home (click to open link)

Dear Residents

At the Parish Council meeting held on 14th October the Parish Council was asked to investigate the possible installation of dog waste bins.

The Parish Council has been informed by Herefordshire Council that they do not supply or empty such bins and it is the responsibility of all dog owners to clean up after their dog and take the waste home with them for disposal there.  Accordingly the Parish Council will not be providing dog waste bins anywhere in the Parish.  The Parish Council is not, and cannot be, responsible for emptying bins and disposing of people’s dog waste.

If you have a dog you are required by law to clean up after it and dispose of the waste in a responsible manner.  Anyone found not doing so is liable to be prosecuted and fined.   Please do not use the litter bin by the bus stop.  This bin is for general litter only.  Please be a responsible dog owner and dispose of its waste appropriately.  Thank you for your co-operation.

Yours sincerely

Alma Westwood

Clerk, SLPC
