Bag It and Bin It!

Inka from 1 5 walkers wynd  (1) detail

To help you pick up after your dog, we have free dog waste bags available from our office. You can come in at any time during office hours to collect some bags. If you are a Prospect tenant and are not able to get to the office we can also post them out to you if you call us on 0131 458 5480.

We also want to remind dog owners that is an offence if you do not pick up and get rid of your dog's fouling. Used bags should be placed in any litter bin, or your own non recycling bin. If you do not pick up after your dog in a public place, you are at risk of being issued a fixed penalty notice of £80, under the Dog Fouling (Scotland) Act 2003. Public places include 

  • footpaths and roads
  • parks, including football or rugby pitches
  • shared land like back greens, stairs, and closes
  • any open land that the public has access to

You can find more information on this issue and how to report it on the council's website.
