Dog fouling

Dog fouling is consistently one of the highest sources of complaints by the public to MPs, local councillors and local authorities. Estimates put the UK dog population between 6.5 and 7.4 million, producing 1,000 tonnes of waste every day.

How to report dog fouling

You can report dog fouling online by completing our report dog fouling form.

What we provide

There are over 650 litter bins in Bracknell Forest. These can be used to dispose of both litter and bagged dog waste.

The Litter (Animal Droppings) Order 1991 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 places a duty on local authorities to maintain publicly accessible areas to acceptable standards.

Our street cleansing contractor provides a service for removing animal waste. The service applies to all public sites and adopted roads that are managed by the council.
