Launch of 'Your dog, your poop' initiative

Dublin's four local authorities have launched a summer campaign to combat dog fouling across Dublin City and county.

"With the tourist season upon us and schools getting their holidays, Dublin’s parks, beaches and open spaces are sure to be very busy. This means it’s an ideal time to remind dog owners that they have an obligation to clean up after their dog," remarked Dl/R Cathaoirleach, Cllr Marie Baker.We want everybody to enjoy the wonderful parks and open spaces Dublin has to offer so we’re reminding all dog owners to ‘Bin the Poo’. Your dog is your responsibility and not cleaning up after your dog is against the law”, she added.

Cllr Baker was joined on Dún Laoghaire Pier by the Lord Mayor of Dublin Christy Burke, Mayor of Fingal, Cllr. Mags Murray and the Mayor of South Dublin, Cllr. Fintan Warfield.

The campaign will see new ‘Bin the Poo’ signs in public spaces which highlight the responsibility of dog owners to clean up after their dogs and remind them to ‘leave only paw prints’.

The four authorities expect to erect 3,000 of these over the course of the year. Each local authority will also broadcast an audio message at two public locations asking dog owners to dispose of their dog waste responsibly.
