Council’s ‘Don’t Give Dogs a Bad Name’ campaign asks for support to continue

1 Mins read

Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council is asking everyone to prevent giving dogs throughout the Borough a ‘bad name’ by cleaning up after them with the new ‘Don’t Give Dogs A Bad Name’ campaign which commenced four weeks ago.

Enforcement officers have been leaving a visual reminder on the street where a dog fouls, in the form of paint. After the dog foul is circled with paint, the Cleansing staff remove the dog foul on the streets that have been identified in the campaign. This paint will wear off over the next couple of weeks.

The identified heavily fouled local streets and areas for additional patrols are: North Road and Headlands Avenue, Ballymoney; Moyle Road and Atlantic Avenue, Ballycastle; Station Road, Dungiven; Scroggy Road, Limavady; Girona Avenue, Portrush; and Mountsandel Road, Coleraine.

Members of the public are encouraged to report offenders who do not ‘Bag it, and Bin it’ and continue to support the campaign. The information Council needs when reporting an incident is: Date and time of the fouling incident, description of dog and address or street that it lives on, who was walking the dog.

An example of a reported incident may look like this: On 1st May a brown and white dog, medium size, with a white haired lady from Main Street walking dog in Anderson Park, it fouled and she looked at it and left the park.

To report dog fouling please contact Council’s Environmental Services Department on 028 7034 7171 or email [email protected]
