I have had a meeting this week with Regulatory Services and discussed various ways of tackling this issue, from Education to fining. I will feedback on this later as it was a very comprehensive and productive meeting.
Fixed Penalty notices issued 1st March to 31st March (Fines)
Dog Fouling 22
Dropping Litter 2
I can also confirm that there will be more activities in relation to tackling this type of problem in the near future.
It is estimated that one in three households include a dog, with around 100,000 households in Conwy and Denbighshire, it is estimated that we have around 33,000 dogs.
Each dog potentially produces, a conservatively estimated, 100 grammes of waste a day, collectively around 3.3 tonnes per day or just over 1200 tonnes per annum.
So just the mindless minority not picking up after their dog is quite a problem.
