Gwynedd Council and its partners will be holding a dog fouling awareness day in Bangor and the surrounding areas, on Friday, 3 September.
Gwynedd Council staff will be joining forces with staff from North Wales Police on the campaign. This follows the success of similar events in Barmouth, Caernarfon, Pwllheli and Tywyn.
The aim of the day is to raise awareness of the danger dog faeces can pose to public health as well as the social connotations, and to encourage dog owners to be responsible and clear up after their animal while out and about.
Free poop-scoop packs will be given to members of the public during the awareness day and officers will be on hand to give advice and information. New warning signs will also be erected on the day.
