Dog fouling

If you know that someone doesn't clear up after their dog you should report the times and places that it happens.

It is an offence to not clean up immediately after your dog in any open public space. If your dog fouls the street and you don't clean it up you could be fined up to £500. If you are issued with a fixed penalty notice, the fine is £40, rising to £60 if not paid within 28 days.

If you think dog fouling is an issue in your area we can arrange to have ‘No fouling’ signs displayed.

All of the street bins in South Lanarkshire can be used for bagged dog poo. Free dog poo bags are available from Q&As and libraries.
