Dog owners are being reminded of their responsibilities to pick up after their pets with the help of further signs being installed across South Kesteven.
Signs advising that fines can apply to those who flout the rules have recently been installed in locations including Tattershall Drive in Market Deeping, Elsea Park and the surrounding area in Bourne, Barkston and Hudson Way in Grantham.
The council’s environmental health team are listening to and working with local residents to identify areas where dog fouling incidents regularly occur.
Teams installing the signage are also educating and reminding owners to pick up after their pets or face a £75 on the spot fine.
SKDC’s executive manager for environment Ian Yates said: “Dog owners are responding to the volume of signs we are placing across the district, as part of our wider education initiative to inform them of their responsibilities of picking up after their pets in public places.
“Our environmental health team appreciate dog owners and residents being our eyes and ears in submitting their own reports to us on areas that require further monitoring.
“We all want the district to be a cleaner and greener place so owners need to do their part and remember dog waste can be left in public litter bins as long as it is bagged.”
Those wishing to report dog fouling should call 01476 40 60 80 or report it online at www.southkesteven.gov.uk
