Dog Wastebag Dispensers

Provision of free dog wastebagsDog Waste Bag Dispenser

Following a consultation, many of the dog wastebag dispensers have been removed, as the consensus was that they were not needed and the bags should be provided by the dog owner.  However, there was a different opinion in Grange Moor, Lepton, Stocksmoor and Thurstonland.  Therefore the dispensers in those villages were left in place.  Please see the list below to find out their exact locations.

(LP = Lamp Post)  Please tie up tightly before putting the filled bags into the ordinary litter bins, which will be emptied on a regular schedule by Kirklees Council.

Councillors voluntarily fill up the dispensers on a fairly regular basis, but certain dispensers appear to be emptied completely almost as soon as they are filled.  Please remember, dog walkers should take their own bags with them, and use the Parish Council's as an emergency supply.  They are there for everyone, so don't take someone else's share.

Please don't abuse this free supply, and only take one when you need it.
