Dog Bins

Many complaints are received daily by the Fareham Borough Council with regard to 'dog fouling' nuisances. There are signs throughout the Borough with respect to :- 'NO FOULING', 'DOGS ON LEAD' and 'NO DOGS'.

Under the Dogs (Fouling of Land) Act 1996 there is no requirement for a local authority to place signs on designated land. There is also no requirement in the Act to provide bins, specifically for the disposal of dog waste, although Fareham Borough Council supplies nearly 250 bins throughout the area.

Dog bins

A strict monitoring system is in place to ensure that the dog bins are emptied 3 times a week, this includes colour coded bin liners which should be as follows:-

If you notice any problems with the dog bins, if they are overflowing or have been damaged in some way please help by informing Fareham Borough Council in order that prompt action can be taken.

To report bins which have not been emptied, or further information on dog related issues please contact us on 01329 236100.
