Bexley actively encourages dog owners to act responsibly and clear up after their dogs.
It is illegal not to clear up the mess left by your dog as soon as it has fouled and those that leave their mess behind are liable to a fixed penalty notice.
- With over 200 dedicated dog waste bins throughout the borough, there is no excuse to leave dog mess on the streets and in parks and open spaces.
- Free dog waste bags are currently available to residents at Council Offices and Libraries. If you can't find a dog bin, bag your pet's faeces and take it home for disposal. If no other option is available, pick up any mess and seal it well using a bag which can then be carefully placed in a standard litter bin.
The Council encourages responsible dog ownership as part of its promotion for the health and welfare of its residents.
It is the responsibility of the dog owner or the person in charge of a dog to clear up any mess left by the dog as soon as it has fouled.
The Council can apply stencils to the pavement to remind dog owners to clear up after their pet. If you would like stencils applied, please contact the Enviro-Crime team.
Dogs are excluded from some areas of parks, mainly children's playgrounds.
You can help take a stand against dog fouling in Bexley by reporting an incident. Information provided to the Enviro-Crime team by members of the local community can assist in identifying who is committing an offence and at what times.
When reporting an offence of dog fouling please think about the following:
- Do you know of a dog owner who never, or hardly ever, picks up after their pet?
- Do they usually walk the dog at a certain time during the day?
- What times are the offences being committed?
- Where are the offences being committed?
- What does the dog look like?
- What does the owner look like?
- If the dog owner using a car, what is the number on the registration plate?
Dog fouling can be tackled by the whole community working together. Some dog owners think that they can get away with not picking up after their pet if they believe they can not be seen. But as more and more people come forward to report dog fouling offences, irresponsible dog owners may start to think twice about their actions.
If you would like to report a dog fouling offender, please complete the online form with as many details as possible.
Remember that more information you can give, the greater chance there is of offenders being caught.
