How to get rid of dog waste

  • Dog bins
  • We provide dog waste bins throughout County Durham, at locations such as parks, grass verges, pedestrian areas, footpaths, larger open spaces and coastal promenades. We regularly check dog bins and empty when required. You can also use any public litter bin to dispose of dog waste.
  • Household bins
  • You can also get rid of dog waste in your household rubbish bin, provided it is properly bagged. Please do not place dog waste in your household recycling bin as this will contaminate your recycling.

If you would like to report dog fouling or dog fouling offences, please contact the council on 03000 260000 or by completing the do it on line feature on
