Environmental Issues

Dog Fouling Control

Litter Management

Under the Litter Pollution Acts (1997-2009) it is an offence not to clean up after your dog. If your dog has fouled in a public place it is your responsibility to dispose of it in a proper manner. If you don't clean up your dogs waste you can receive a fine of €150 or a fine in the District Court of up to €3,000.

Dog owners cause a health hazard by not removing their dog waste from streets, parks, beaches, playgrounds and other public places where people and children walk and play. Dogs are largely responsible for an infection known as toxocariasis which mostly affects children. Dog waste can be placed in any litter bin. Please help to keep Fingal free from dog fouling by playing your part.
