The area from the Post Office along the Ayre of Myres and The Lower Station to Whitehall has become 'a health hazard to the island community'.
Please install Bins to encourage dog walkers to place the waste matter and arrange for the emptying of the bins. Poop scoops and bags are to be distributed through the Post Office and village shop free of charge.

  • We have put free bags and poop scoops in the local shops and Post Office It does not appear to have any uptake.The council have said they will not provide dog litter bins but to use the ordinary public litter bins. We do not have any public litter bins only the ones in the childrens play park which are never emptied and the refuse blows out of them in the high winds! The Council have been informed of this. The bins cost £200 pounds in the play park and no one has been designated to empty them.
    The dog fouling is a major problem.
