Dog Fouling - Hambleton Council's Guide
Be aware for a successful conviction provide the Council with as much information as possible
Dog waste bins are provided throughout the district to encourage dog owners to clean up after their pets. Please dispose of dog waste in your black bin.
If a dog defecates at any time on designated land AND the person in charge of the dog at that time fails to remove the faeces, that person is guilty of an offence. Penalty for such an offence is £50 FPN (fixed penalty notice) or if the above fine is left unpaid or contested the Council will take action through the magistrates court which carries fines of up to £1000, a criminal record, court costs, and victim surcharge. Please do not put dog waste into the green garden waste bin.
