New and improved dog poo bins are on the way in West Norfolk.
The borough council is aiming to replace around a third which are damaged or getting old, and some will be getting larger ones.
Council leader Stuart Dark MBE said: “We have made it clear, in both words and action, that we, like most residents and visitors, love west Norfolk and our beautiful surroundings. This was most recently demonstrated by our investment of just short of £400K in an enhanced service to tackle illegal fly-tipping and support great local litter picking initiatives. This action now adds to that by helping the many, many responsible dog owners in our area dispose properly of their pet’s waste and help them and others enjoy safely our streets, walks and open spaces.
“We know that defective and overflowing bins have been an issue for many parishes. Our public open space team will, over the coming weeks, assess the condition of current dog waste bins across the 550 square miles of the borough and replace ones that are damaged, defective or showing their age as required. Additionally, many popular locations will benefit from increased capacity.”
