We will tackle dog fouling

I write in response to a letter in the Reporter last week related to dog fouling around Heckmondwike Road.

As ward councillors we will indeed arrange for dog fouling to be cleared up here.

Like your reader, we encourage all dog owners to clear up as they take their dogs for a walk.

We know that the majority of owners do pick up dog fouling and we want to thank those owners for keeping the area clean.

In a minority of cases some dog owners are not clearing as they walk their dogs. If there is any advice we can offer regarding disposal I’d encourage people to get in touch.
