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:

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.
