National Poop Scoop week is upon us, and to promote the canine clean-up, Cheshire East wardens have tailed on a campaign.

Cheshire East Council Dog and Community Wardens and The Dogs Trust, the UK’s largest dog welfare charity, are urging dog owners to clean up after their dogs when out walking this summer.

The campaign is due to launch on July 26 and will see community and dog wardens handing out free poop scoops and chatting to owners about all sorts of dog-related issues.

During national poop scoop week, the community wardens will be encouraging responsible dog ownership. It is estimated that dog fouling costs councils £22 million a year to clean up, and remains the country’s most complained about issue.

Councillor Rachel Bailey, Cabinet member with responsibility for Safer and Stronger Communities said: “Every dog owner has a responsibility to clean up after their dog, and throughout the week we aim to raise awareness of this issue and encourage the minority of irresponsible dog owners to keep public spaces clean and pleasant for everyone to enjoy safely.”

Every year Cheshire East Council received 100s of complaints about dog mess which fouls our parks, pavements and public spaces.

Failure to clean up after your dog is an offence and could result in a £50 Fixed Penalty Notice being issued. Cheshire East Council has issued eight of these notices since January 2010. Continued failure to comply can lead to prosecution and a substantial fine.

Monday 26, 9am - 5pm
