There are around 360 dog waste bins in East Devon. Almost all are emptied 3 times per week: on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. You can view them all on our web map.
If you find an overflowing dog bin please complete our online full dog bin form, or for a damaged bin please complete our online dog bin repair form and we will arrange to have it repaired. However, if the bin is due to be emptied within 24 hours, we will not usually be able to empty it before the next scheduled visit. Every bin in the district has a unique ID number sticker - please quote this number when reporting a full bin to us.
If you find grass or pavements covered with dog fouling, please contact us using the details above and we will arrange for a prompt clean up.
Can I use a litter bin if there is not dog bin nearby?
Yes, but only as a last resort. Where possible please use a dog bin or take dog waste home with you and dispose of it in your landfill bin. If you have to use a litter bin you must ensure that waste is properly bagged.
I would like to request a dog waste bin to be put in the park or street near my home can you arrange this?
A request for a new dog waste bin should be put to your local Town or Parish Council. East Devon District Council no longer finance additional bins due to the high number already provided in the district. However, we do organise the installation and emptying of new bins on behalf of Town and Parish Councils. They currently cost approximately £150 for supply and installation and £200 per annum to empty.
Please note: Exmouth Town Council and Honiton Town Council are not able to fund any more dog bins.
