  GARDEN WASTE COLLECTION

Dear Clerk,

Dorset Council would like your help please.

 As you may already be aware, the effects of the widely-reported national HGV driver shortage - coupled with the continuing impact of the pandemic - are starting to disrupt some of our waste services.

 

We are working hard to ensure that key waste services continue to run throughout this challenging time, but we are having to temporarily suspend or delay some garden waste collections so that crews can be redeployed to support vital rubbish, food and recycling collections. Litter bins are also being emptied less frequently in some areas of the county, and new bin deliveries are also being delayed.

 

While we continue to work on tackling the problem, I would greatly appreciate it if you could pass these key messages to any residents who may approach you with questions or concerns around their bin collections: –

Always report your missed collection directly to Dorset Council, even if your whole street is affected. Our website has an automated system that will inform you what’s happening with your bins and provide guidance on what to do next (Weblink - Missed bin collection - Dorset Council)

Please ensure your bins are out by 6am on your collection day. Some rounds are being carried out differently, meaning that we might turn up earlier or later in the day than usual

If you find a litter bin is full, do not try to leave your litter on top/next to it or on the floor nearby – please take it home and place in your household bin. We also encourage people to report over-filled bins on the Dorset Council website (Weblink - Report a public litter bin problem - Dorset Council sel - Welcomef-service portal (achieveservice.com))

If any garden waste collections have to be cancelled/stood down we will contact customers directly to advise them. As compensation for any garden waste collections that were not received, we will automatically apply a discount to next year’s subscription fee.

Rubbish, recycling, garden and food waste can be dropped off free of charge at any of Dorset’s household recycling centres, which are operating as normal.

If there are any further questions or comments from yourself or your residents, please contact the Dorset Council waste services team at wasteteam@dorsetcouncil.gov.uk. If anyone is interested in joining our waste services as a driver or a loader, they can find out more about current vacancies at https://jobs.dorsetcouncil.gov.uk/

 

We will keep providing updates as the situation changes, and continue to speak with MPs to work on a long-term solution. Town and Parish councils are a vital partner for us when working with the people of Dorset, so I want to thank you for your support and understanding.

 

Kind regards,

Cabinet Member for Customer Services and Communities

Chalk Valleys Ward

Enforcement of Dog related Public Spaces Protection Order to start

Posted onFebruary 1, 2021 No Commentson Enforcement of Dog related Public Spaces Protection Order to start

The Dorset Council wide Dog related Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) came into force on the 1 January 2021. During the first month Dorset Council focused  on advice and guidance to dog-owners explaining the new rules.

The PSPO places restrictions on dog owners in control of their dogs.  These restrictions  include clearing up dog fouling and proper disposal of the waste in any open space.  On certain land dogs are not allowed on marked sports pitches or enclosed children’s play areas or are required to be on lead, such as in cemeteries, formal gardens etc.  There are also dog restrictions on some beaches relating to certain times of the year, the details can be found at the beach locations.

From 1 February if the rules are broken Fixed Penalty Notices (FPN) may be issued by enforcement officers. FPNs can be served by post if a witness provides details of the dog owner (such as their address) or their vehicle registration number and are willing to provide a suitable witness statement.

Cllr Jill Haynes, Dorset Council Portfolio Holder for Customer and Community  Services said:

“The PSPO has been made to protect the health of Dorset residents and visitors and is particularly aimed at areas that children and families use.

“It targets times and places that attract families, but leaves a variety of open spaces, countryside and beaches where there aren’t any restrictions.

 

 

 

                                                                    

Sydling St Nicholas Parish Council has received a number of complaints about several areas in the village where Dog Faeces being left on public Highways & Footpaths. 

In response to this issue the Parish Council have erected some new signs which are having a positive impact on the worst affected areas. The council is shortly to undertake further Anti-Dog Fouling measures as it is an ongoing problem that needs to be tackled and here’s why.

 

 

A) 40% of Dog owners do not take responsibility for cleaning up after their Dog.

 

B) It is Estimated that 9 Million Dogs produce 1000 Tonnes of Waste Every Day.

 

C) Just 30g of Dog Poo can contain over 23 million micro organisms of bacteria. That’s twice as much as human faeces!

 

D) Disease and viruses such as E.Coli and Coccidia can be found in Dog Poo and can also contain worms and their eggs like Toxocara Canis (roundworm).

 

E) Just one pile of Dog Poo can contain a million roundworm eggs! Which can lead to stomach upsets, throat infections, asthma and in some cases blindness in humans.

Over 100 cases of partial blindness In children are seen every year due to Toxocara Canis eggs found in Dog Poo.

 

F) Dog Poo left on fields can expose a variety of mammals including Cows & Sheep to a parasitic infection Neosporosis, is found in Dog Poo and is caused by infection with the protozoa Neospora Caninum. Neospora has been found to cause abortions in cattle, sheep and Dogs.

 

G) Under the Dog Act 1996, it is UK Law to clean up after your dog. On the spot fines can be given between £50- £80 for anyone caught failing to do so. (Varies between Local Authorities. )Refusal to pay the fine, (maximum penalty of £1,000.) may result in prosecution and you could face a court appearance.

Registered blind dog owners are exempt from penalties.

H) Costs to promote Dog Fouling issues within the village, comes out of Your Parish Council Precept and could ultimately affect you as it may increase how much Council Tax you have to pay.

 

 

If you are aware of a Dog fouling issue in the village, please report this to any member of Sydling St Nicholas Parish Council or by means of the Dorset County Council website link:
