West Dunbartonshire Council sits between the River Clyde and Loch Lomond and incorporates the historic town of Dumbarton and Clydebank.
The Council works in partnership with Keep Scotland Beautiful to highlight the nuisance and health hazard caused by irresponsible dog owners not picking up after their pets.
2012's Do The Right Thing campaign highlighted a number of black spots where dog mess was a particular problem. The Council's Greenspace team contacted Glasdon UK, and our representative recommended the Glasdon Jubilee 110 Litter Bin with combined Litter and Dog Waste Graphics.
Glasdon Jubilee is robust and stylish, with a strong slam-lock door and four large apertures. The bin has a domed hood to prevent litter being piled on top and integrally moulded ridges that deter flyposting and graffiti.
The Council installed a number of Glasdon Jubilee 110 bins and continued a program of distributing free dog poo bags - the Greenspace team estimate that 1.8 million were given out in 2013.
Councillor David McBride, convener for Housing, Environment and Economic Development, told the Dumbarton Reporter:
"Last year's campaign tackled dog fouling head-on and was well-received by residents.
"But the remaining irresponsible dog-owners who don't pick up after their pets are a tough nut to crack, and so we need to keep reminding them how disgusting their behaviour is.
"It is also important to respond to feedback and make it as easy as possible for people to be good owners. The free dog poo bags are a great example of this and we're now shifting more of these than ever before.
"Installing the additional litter bins should help as well and clearly shows that the information that people pass to the Council is used directly by officers to improve the service we provide. The pressure is now on all dog owners to respond by picking up their pet's poo and disposing of it safely."
