BIN COLLECTION
01 August 2022

There remain some issues across the county with missed bin collections and the inability to report them using Fix my Street. There is now a dedicated site for reporting missed bin collections that you may wish to add to your email contacts alongside Fix My Street Report a missed bin collection | Buckinghamshire Council 

Sadly if the issue is not entered within two working days it cannot be reported. Bucks has had this raised with them. Residents need to be aware and it would save a lot of angst for all if we had been informed also. keep an eye on their web site.

DOGS FOULING
01 August 2022

AN ESTIMATED 880 TONNES OF DOG POO DEPOSITED IN OUR PARKS EVERY DAY

New research with local authorities from environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy reveals that the amount of dog mess being left by owners in our parks has increased since the start of 2021, with more than half of local authorities surveyed reporting an increase in both unbagged dog poo left on the ground and bagged dog poo ‘carefully’ placed in parks, for example, left hanging from railings or trees.

A new survey carried out on behalf of the charity by YouGov shows that the vast majority of dog owners say that they dispose of dog waste responsibly, either putting it in a bin in the park (85%) or taking it home with them (40%).

However, four per cent, which equates to approximately 520,000 dog owners, admit leaving their dog’s poo unbagged on the ground, equating to around 35.3 tonnes of dog poo.

Approximately 260,000 people leave bagged poo elsewhere (e.g. hanging from a tree, on a post, or under a bush) – equivalent to 17.7 tonnes.
