Pet owners in North Lincolnshire in a pet waste pickle

North Lincolnshire Council impose pet waste limit at the tip

North Lincolnshire Council’s decision to cancel pet waste collections and to allow residents to take only one bag of animal waste per week to local tips has created a serious problem for pet owners throughout the district.

From the end of March, the council will no longer provide a separate collection service for pet waste from its local recycling and waste centres and as a result it has decided to restrict the number of bags of pet waste that residents can take to the tip each week.

Pet owners in the area have been left incensed after being informed of the restriction. The council has said that pet owners can take only one carrier bag worth of pet waste to the tip per week.

North Lincolnshire residents who own multiple furry friends are now finding themselves left with unmanageable amounts of pet waste, as the council has not provided an alternative.

Gavin Howe, 32, from Scunthorpe, told Scunthorpe Telegraph: “At the moment I’m just having to pile it up in the front garden. I’m worried it will attract vermin and I will have environmental health round.”

Residents believe the decision will result in an increase in fly-tipping in the district, as pet owners have been left with very little option. The decision has also affected the owners of pet related businesses, including the owners of Cedar Farm Kennels in Burringham, which is now stuck without a pet waste disposal method.

Another Scunthorpe residents, who owns 18 rabbits, has told Scunthorpe Telegraph that she has contacted multiple private waste disposal companies, but the costs are more than she can reasonably afford as a private individual.
