The first lockdown saw an increase in new owners for dogs. Not all new owners are familiar with their responsibilities when walking their dogs, such as clearing waste and disposing of waste bags correctly. Tandridge council allow the disposal of dog waste bags in general rubbish bins as well as the specific dog waste bins. A scheme by Tandridge District Council for the replacement of all waste bins across the district will see joint waste bins at various locations. If you are a dog owner please be considerate and clear up after your dog, using the bins for depositing your waste bags.
