Dog Fouling



If you find dog waste in a public place please report it

If you are a dog owner, you are required by law to clean up after your dog in public places. That includes roads, pavements, parks, car parks and all shared open spaces.

Where should I put my dog’s waste?

We provide special dog bins in parks and other areas often used by dog walkers.

If there isn’t a dog bin on your dog walking route, it’s your responsibility to pick up and take your dog’s waste home with you.

What should I do if the bin is full?

If the bin is full, please contact Matthew Sheehan, Town Council Clerk on 01299 271154

Dog fouling is a major issue in many towns. It is the most offensive type of litter and is consistently raised as a public concern.


Shropshire Council will take enforcement action against anyone who is witnessed letting their dog foul in public without cleaning it up.

If you have information about a dog fouling you can report it to Matthew Sheehan on 01299 271154,  or you can fill in a ‘Witness to dog fouling report’ available by clicking the link below.
