Dog Fouling is a nation-wide problem, which is why we have launched a scheme offering a £50 reward to people if their information leads to a successful prosecution for dog fouling
Residents will be offered £50 rewards for information on dog owners who allow their pets to foul public spaces, as part of the Councils drive to tackle dog fouling.
Last year, 100 extra dog bins were placed around the Borough, bringing the total to 300, with another 54 in parks, we also have 200,000 free bags for owners to use to clear up their dog waste, these are available for collection from Scaitcliffe House reception and Willows Lane Depot Reception, maximum of 2 packs per person.
If the information provided leads to either a successful prosecution or the issuing of a Fixed Penalty Notice, then, subject to criteria and guidelines, the Council will give the resident who reported it £50.
You will be required to gives us as much information as possible, you could make a start by filling in the online form or call our Contact Centre on 01254 388 111.
