Report dog fouling in a public place

What is it?

Dog fouling in a public place is when an owner fails to remove their dog's mess.

If your dog fouls in an open space, you must clean it up.

We provide litter and dog waste bins in many parks and public spaces.

You can also put bagged dog waste in your domestic refuse (green) bin.

The 'bag it bin it' campaign is actively promoted throughout the city and signs are mounted to lamp posts and affixed in problem areas.

What is the fixed penalty?

If you do not dispose of this type of waste in the correct way and are caught, you could receive a fixed penalty notice of £80 issued under the Dog Fouling (Scotland) Act 2003.

The penalty increases to £100 if not paid within 28 days.

How do I report it?

You can report dog fouling in a public place using our online form.
