I'm not joking when I say this, there seems to be more litter bins on the side of our local mountain than there is in Glasgow and I see them being emptied at the start of every week. Every where you find a bench seat (and there are lots because of the various views and steep paths) you'll find one or more. When you consider how few people actually go up there in the course of a week it says a lot for a caring council.

THH, there's no doubt that there is a significant shortage of certain types of bins on the streets of Glasgow today. In the city centre there is a real shortage of 'cigarette bins'; while in residential neighbourhoods I hardly ever see dedicated 'dog dirt' bins. The number of ordinary litter bins has increased in Glasgow over the last few years but, as you say, there is an issue with how quickly they are emptied.

That said, according to Clean Glasgow:
QUOTE
... Glasgow’s final score [in a Keep Scotland Beautiful survey] for 2010/11 was 70/100 – its highest ever and within touching distance of the Scottish average. Just ten years ago, the city’s rating was a lowly 47. ...

Although, it has to be said also, that the survey results are based on a random selection of a small number of streets, so it is not a comprehensive or rigorous method, but may provide a helpful indicator.

... the same report had this to say:
QUOTE
4.1 Dog fouling

The impact from dog fouling on the streets of Scotland has remained similar since last year, affecting 6.9% of sites visited. The majority of
dog fouling was found to be minor
(one or two small incidents along the transect), only 0.2% of streets monitored nationally recording either
a significant or severe presence.

The statistics suggest that over winter, the presence of dog fouling was more prevalent, with over one in ten transects during the December audits over the last two audit years recording an incident. It appears that auditing soon after a thaw from snow coverage, during which faecal matter will be hidden, is the main reason behind this spike in presence.

Rab,

We're just back from extended shopping and Belle our Jack Russell has fouled (a pee) the kitchen floor. She is only eight months. Floor needed a wash for Christmas anyway - but is this a Council matter?

Regards

Ian

More (photo) evidence today that a bigger in Glasgow than owners not picking up after their dogs, is the council's inability to provide bins where responsible dog owners can 'bin it' after 'bagging it'.

Of course, the story pays no attention to what the photographer uncovered, apparently in the Springburn area of Glasgow!

Flush out the ‘dirty dogs’ who won’t clean up!

Looks like the photographing of dogs hasn't worked quite as expected. Today's Evening Times reported that public concern about dogs fouling the city street has rocketed from 48% to 80%.

On the [ahem] bright side, 81% of Glaswegians questioned in the Glasgow survey were “very” or “fairly” satisfied with street lighting!

I always pick up after my dog, it's absolutely disgusting. Would you believe, once I was picking up, and did not realise I had stood in some of it...another pooch's!

It's not the dogs fault! Here in OZ councils provide plastic bags to pick up doggy doo. It's easy. You just tie a bag to the lead. Certainly owners should be penalised.

Yes I was amazed at that in Aus. Everywhere you go wee poles with Dog Pooh packets. I even brought a couple home to let folk see them. also appreciated dog beaches, and they were clean.
