Frequently asked questions about dog fouling

A number of dog waste bins have been installed on the streets of Charnwood, but in addition to this, dog waste can be wrapped and deposited in any ordinary litter bin.

We would encourage residents to consider using a biodegradable dog waste bag. You can purchase these from the majority of supermarkets and pet shops.
