Dog fouling

Dog fouling is where a person in charge of a dog allows it to foul and fails to clean it up.

Dog fouling is an environmental crime and you could be given a Fixed Penalty Notice.

Disposing of dog waste

All street litter and dog waste bins are dual use bins. You can put dog waste into any of the Council bins.

Please ensure you put the bagged dog waste in the bin and not on the lid.

If there is no suitable bin available, you need to take your dogs' mess home with you.

Report dog fouling


Alternatively you can report it to Contact Harlow.

If the dog waste is on a hard surface,  we will clear it within one working day of receiving a report.
