DOG FOULING
Thankfully most people do clean up after their dogs but we do want to send out a clear message the details of anyone witnessed failing to clear up after their dog will be passed onto the borough council. It is an offence to allow dogs to foul footways and there is no excuse as ample bins are provided throughout the village and dog bags are available free of charge from the Village Stores. If you observe anyone allowing their dog to foul and who does not clear up please report the incident to the Clerk, a Parish Councillor, the Community Warden or to the borough councils dog warden. The Dog Warden can be contacted on 01732 876181 or email dog.warden@tmbc.gov.uk.

BULKY REFUSE
You can dispose of bulky household refuse, free of charge by using the freighter which visits the Sports Hall car park fortnightly.

LITTER
We are grateful to our litter wardens for making the effort to keep the village litter free. We would like to encourage all residents to keep the areas in front of their homes litter free.

FLYTIPPING
Householders are asked to work with the borough council to combat fly tipping by ensuring that rubbish is dealt with properly. The disposal of household waste into public litterbins is considered to be fly tipping. Flytipping will be treated as a crime, which can lead to enforcement action being taken leading to a maximum fine of £50,000 or up to a five year prison sentence.
