New Dog Bins in Peckleton

New Dog Bins in Peckleton

Peckleton now has three new dog bins to help keep the pavements and open spaces clear of dog fouling and to help responsible dog owners to more easily dispose of their dog's faeces. The Parish Council, in addition to providing the bins, has contracted with HBBC for all the bins to be emptied every week.

Please see the map for the location of the new bins.

For some time there has been concern across the village about dog fouling, which is both very unpleasant and also poses a risk to health to humans and animals. It is thought that roughly half of the dog population is infested with the parasitic worm "toxocara" which can cause blindness in humans; this is a particular concern for children. More »

In recent times the law has been changing and anyone walking a dog must pick up any fouling and dispose of it correctly. It is also obligatory for dog walkers to carry bags to clear up the waste and then it can be disposed of by either being taken home or by using the dog waste bins. Clearly the more accessible dog bins are the better. » Less
