Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Com­mu­nity war­dens are crack­ing down on dog foul­ing in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang this week.

They will be pa­trolling the area with a two-pronged ini­tia­tive, which fea­tures war­dens car­ry­ing out ed­u­ca­tion work by is­su­ing fly­ers and dis­tribut­ing dog waste refuse bags, as well as is­su­ing fixed penalty no­tices to peo­ple who don’t clean up af­ter their pets.

Ann Gee, South La­nark­shire Coun­cil’s ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of hous­ing and tech­ni­cal re­sources, said: “In re­sponse to con­cerns from res­i­dents, the coun­cil’s com­mu­nity war­dens are now car­ry­ing out rou­tine pa­trols for dog foul­ing and lit­ter­ing in ar­eas across South La­nark­shire.

“In­cluded within this week’s pa­trols are ar­eas within Cam­bus­lang and Ruther­glen.”
