Dog owners in the Deepings and Bourne can make use of the area’s litter bins by putting their pets’ waste in them - as long as it is bagged.

A growing number of litter bins around Market Deeping, Bourne and the surrounding villages now have the message “Dog Waste Accepted” on them to encourage people to use bins, as long as the waste is put in a bag.

Ian Yates, executive manager for environment at South Kesteven District Council, said: “Our environmental health team works with dog owners to educate them on their responsibilities to pick up their pets’ waste.

“We want everyone to enjoy our public open spaces and leave highways and paths free of mess and litter.

“So if you have bagged the waste but cannot find a litter bin, then please do the right thing and take the waste home.

“We know that rules vary across Lincolnshire and so we are continuing to remind dog owners that they can use litter bins for their pet waste in South Kesteven.

If you have bagged the waste but cannot find a litter bin, then please do the right thing and take the waste home
