Audlem & Dog Waste — or Pick Up Your Poop

There have been many comments made regarding the disgraceful behaviour of what is hopefully a minority of Audlem dog owners. It's difficult to know how best to name and shame those who cannot be bothered to perform the simple task of using a readily available poo bag and sensibly dispose of it. Even though the fine for this crime is up to £1000, identifying culprits isn't easy.

Many areas are affected by this selfish and immoral behaviour including Turnpike, Heathfield area, the playing field and even on the footpath right outside of the school entrance — how can people do that???

It's not just on the actual path or track that dog poo should be picked up — but everywhere that other people and children are going to play and walk.

One important aspect of using poo bags is the ability to dispose of them quickly into a rubbish bin.

Unfortunately there are still many ordinary waste bins still displaying a message saying not for the disposal of poo bags.

Until several years ago the rule was that poo bags should only be disposed of in Dog Bins. This has changed and the bags can be disposed of in any general waste bins — obviously not in Recycling bins. You can find numerous County Councils commenting about this since 2017, but no information seems to be available on Cheshire East's website

The APC Clerk has been in contact with Cheshire East this week regarding updating Audlem waste bin labels.

They have responded very quickly and are sending her a quantity of stick-on labels so as to remove the confusion and encourage more poo bags to be used and disposed of at many or places around the village.
