Bags of dog waste dumped in bushes

DSC_0231

Local residents are outraged that dozens of white bags containing dog mess have been thrown into the bushes alongside Ryleys Lane.

Whilst the offender(s) is picking up the mess and bagging it, but instead of taking it home or putting it in a bin, such as the new one which has recently been installed around the corner at the end of Green Lane, they are chucking the bags in the bushes.

Dog walker Brian Davies told alderleyedge.com "It is a disgusting habit of picking dog mess up putting it in plastic bags and throwing on the grass verges of Ryleys Lane. I have been looking out but haven't seen anyone doing it. It really is a mess.

"It has been going on for several months and there are about 30 white bags there now."

Brian added "I heard on the national news last week that it's beginning to be a problem everywhere."

White and blue bags litter the hedgerow along the footpaths and ditches of Chorley ( alderley edge )
The scant regard some dog owners hold for both their neighbours and the countryside is
extraordinary.
The practice is disgusting!

Add to that the empty spirit & beer bottles; the glass ones often broken.
They can be seen in several places, sadly including the park.
Some of the dog walkers pick up the feral pooh and put it into a waste bin. At the same time, picking up the glass bottles.
Someone must, on many occasions, see/know the one/s responsible. If so, please 'name and shame'.

Davey Lane from Elm Grove up to the station "ginnel" is utterly revolting . The same can be said of the ginnel itself . Disgusting as it is this route is frequented with mums , children and buggies on the school run .... One can only imagine the number of shoes , pram wheels , scooters etc which have to negotiate this mess !!! Having to walk this route every morning on my way to work my eyes are peeled at all times for deposits . Whilst this thread refers to bags being left in trees these mounds are not even picked up !!! Not only is dog poo disgusting no detrimental to health it's also illegal not to pick up . This practice needs to be stop now , so that respectable doggy owners like myself cannot be brought into disrepute .

The footpath down upcast lane Wilmslow is another site where bags are left hanging in full view of fencing , gates etc. Who do the offenders think is going to remove their mess

Thank you for bringing this problem to the notice of the villagers, good result as all the bags have been picked up.

Perhaps we left someone with a conscience, so all good.

That's good news Brian. From experience, when I highlight issues like this they often get addressed very quickly but I would expect it was Cheshire East Council who cleared away all the bags, rather than the offender(s).

And as a result hopefully non-picker uppers will begin to do so !!! One can only hope ....

I saw a young man from C/E litter picking in that area this morning while I was out with my two dogs and holding a full BLACK poo bag heading for the bin, it's not hard to carry it a while, it can even warm your hands in winter !

If the photo above is a general situation, might the bushes be strimmed back as well; which might inhibit the vandals?

I live in Wilmslow. Twice in the last two weeks someone has left a huge amount of dog dirt on my forecourt. I can't believe that the owner isn't aware of what is going on. Just because your dog has chosen to create a disgusting amount of mess on a private area doesn't mean you don't have to clean it up yourself.

We have premises on George St for business use and someone sees fit to leave full black dog poo bags in our rear "yard". Just tossed to the floor. Disgusting it certainly is. We are in the process of installing cctv so the findings may be interesting...

Nice to see C/E litter picking on the Alderley Edge By-Pass today after I reported it a couple of weeks ago.
But why,do we the public have to keep reporting things to be done that should be done routinely.
