Dog waste bins are emptied and inspected on a regular basis by Arun District Council. If you see one that is overflowing or damaged, please report it to Arun District Council so that it can be dealt with.
Anyone caught dropping litter, including cigarette butts and chewing gum, or not picking up after their dog can face a fine of £80 (reduced to £50 if paid within 10 days).
This scheme is run for Arun District Council by enforcement company EH Commercial Services Ltd and operates on a zero tolerance policy. The aim of the scheme is to:
ADC liaise with this team to target problem-areas so if you know of a litter or dog fouling hotspot which would benefit from a visit from our officers let ADC know.
The maximum penalty on conviction is £1000.
