For the last 8 years I have travelled the UK and spoken to hundreds of thousands of dog owners about the problem of dog fouling, including the dumped poo bag problem the lack of bins and where they believe it is acceptable to not pick up.

Streetkleen who are campaigning for change in the way councils deal with dog waste have collected together this information to encourage councils to recycle dog waste into energy (yes it can be done – I’ve seen it with my own eyes!). Another...
