Re: Dog Mess

Just found the below on the East Devon DC website - part of a Q & A section.

1. I've just been walking in the Park and the grass/pavement is covered with dog fouling, can you clean it up?
Yes: Telephone 01395 517528 Street Scene Services and the Customer Service Officers will arrange for a prompt "clean up".

2. How often are the dog waste bins emptied?
Normally the dog waste bins are emptied three times a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. If, however, you find them full telephone 01395 517528 and speak to a Customer Service Officer who will arrange to have them emptied.

3.I would like to request a dog waste bin to be put in/on the park/street near my home can you arrange this?
A request for a new dog waste bin should be put to your local Councillor who will make a bid for this on your behalf. Your Councillor will put forward your bid on a once a year basis.

4.Can I pay for a new dog waste bin myself?
Local organisations, rather than individuals, may sponsor a dog waste bin if they wish. Remember though, after the initial cost of the bin, currently around 250 to buy, the annual maintenance (ie to have the bin emptied) will be ongoing and will cost about 150 per year. If you would like to sponsor a bin Telephone 01395 517528 Street Scene Services.

I note a number of postings about dog mess on the playing field.
Last week, one of our after-school clubs needed to take evasive action on the part of the field they were using by putting cones over at least half a dozen dog faeces. Despite this, one child's trainers were completely smothered.
I wonder what it will take for Uplyme dog owners to accept responsibility for their animals rather than to walk away, leaving the possibility of serious illness, most probably to a child.
We work hard in school to provide the best for the children of Uplyme who are the future. It is astounding that some reckless owners just couldn't care less!
