Dog fouling

We aim to clean dog mess within 48 hours of it being reported. Cleaning dog mess is part of the litter picking service we provide to keep streets and pavements clean.

Report dog mess

Dog mess is not only unpleasant but also dangerous to the public’s health, particularly for young children as it can cause serious illnesses.

If you're a dog owner you are responsible to clean up after your dog and dispose of it safely. Bagged dog mess can be put into dog bins, litter bins and domestic waste bins.

If you fail to do so you can be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice of £50.

Remember that it's illegal to allow your dog or any dog you are in charge of to foul the pathway or any other public place. We will prosecute repeated offenders and if convicted you can face a fine of up to £1,000.

Southwark council is introducing a Public Space Protection Order to tackle dog-related anti-social behaviour, which will be effective from 19 March 2018. Find out more about dogs in parks..
