  1. Council 'forced' to unseal dog waste bins due to littering

    Bury Council says it has been forced to unseal dog waste bins in the borough due to the "irresponsible behaviour of some pet owners".

    A sealed dog waste bin

    Shortly after the lockdown began, the authority sealed up all dog waste bins to prioritise household waste collections, with messages asking dog owners to take litter home for disposal.

    The council said that although most have heeded the advice, many dog walkers have ignored it and left waste on top of or near the bin, meaning the council "has been forced" to reopen all bins today.

    Councillor Alan Quinn, cabinet member for the environment, said:

    Quote Message: At a time when we are putting a huge effort into collecting all four household waste bins, we do not need to be diverting our attention to deal with this problem.
