Darlington Borough Council have asked dog owner to clean up their dog mess in public places by using dog poo bags and take their bags home and to deposit them in their household waste wheelie bins during the current Coronavirus Emergency because the dog poo bins are not being emptied on a regular basis and the bins have been taped up. The Parish Council fully supports the approach taken by Darlington Borough Council.
Whilst the majority of dog owners are responsible and do clean up their dog fouling and take their dog poo bags home with them there are some dog owners who are using the Water Park for exercising their dogs and are not cleaning their dog mess up and leaving the full dog poo bags in the Park. Here is a photograph of the dog mess which were collected by a responsible person recently in the Water Park
The majority of dog owners using the Water Park do clean up after their dogs have made a mess but this message is directed to owners who do not clean up the mess made by their dogs or take the dog poo bags home with them.
PLEASE CLEAN UP ANY MESS LEFT BY YOUR DOG, TAKE THE BAG HOME
AND DEPOSIT IT IN THE HOUSEHOLD WASTE WHEELIE BIN. THANK YOU.
