Dog mess on streets is not only annoying but creates an unclean and unhealthy environment. To help tackle this problem, we have provided more than 300 dog waste bins across the district. These can be found in parks and other public spaces.
It is an offence for a person to not clear up after their dog. Take action against people who do not clean up after their animal, by reporting dog fouling issues to us. We will respond within 24 hours.
Green Dog Walkers
Green Dog Walkers (GDW) is a non-confrontational, friendly way to help change attitudes about dog fouling across the Wychavon District.
GDW is a national scheme that has previously won the UK Kennel Club Dog Recognition Award, featured at Crufts, and was a finalist for the CIWM Innovation in Waste Management Award.
Take the Green Dog Walker pledge
All Green Dog Walkers will take a pledge to always:
- Clean up after their dog
- Carry extra dog waste bags
- Be happy to be approached to lend a dog waste bag to those without
- Be a friendly reminder to other dog walkers to clean up after their dogs

If you belong to a Town/Parish Council, private organisation or voluntary organisation and wish to run your own GDW activities in your area, we would love to hear from you.
