FREE DOG BAGS FOR HYNDBURN DOG OWNERS

L- R Cllr Ken Moss, Cabinet Member for Leisure, Cllr Paul Cox, Cabinet Member for Environmental Services, Harry the Hyndburn Hound and Council Leader, Cllr Paul Cox.

 

Free dog poo bags are available for Hyndburn dog owners as part of the Council’s drive to encourage all dog owner’s to clear up after their dog.

Cllr Miles Parkinson, Leader of the Council; said “The majority of dog owners do clean up after their dogs, but it’s just the irresponsible few who refuse to pick up after their dog who spoil things for everyone else. To encourage dog owners to clean up after their dog, I am pleased to announce the Council is once again offering free dog poo bags to all Hyndburn residents and would simply ask that the bag is placed in one of the 338 dog bins that are maintained by the Council, or take it home and dispose it in your grey wheeled bin”.

Cllr Paul Cox, Cabinet Member for Environmental Services, added; “Dog fouling is a national issue and, although numbers of reported incidents have actually dropped in Hyndburn, our dedicated Dog Warden and Enforcement Team continue to work hard every day to tackle the issue and will issue fixed penalty notices to those who allow their dogs to foul.”

Cllr Ken Moss, Cabinet Member for Leisure, added; “Problem areas identified by members of the public will be investigated by the Dog Warden, this includes parks and open spaces, and the Council’s three cemeteries for dogs off leads. We need everyone’s help in the fight against dog fouling, so if you see anyone failing to pick up after their dog please report it to the Council by email: enquiries@hyndburnbc.gov.uk, or by calling 01254 388111.”
