DOG waste, in a bag, can now be put in any litter bin in Trafford, not just in dog bins and soon Trafford Council will be putting stickers on bins to let people know.

When Cllr Neil Taylor and I were out and about in Timperley last week, asking residents for their views on local issues, we were shocked at the amount of dog mess on the pavements.

Dog mess is not only unpleasant, but also a danger to health. We know the issue is widespread across Trafford, and we would like to see successful prosecutions along with fines for those that don’t clean up.

I welcome Timperley residents keeping in touch and let’s keep the area clean and tidy.

Cllr Jane Brophy, Timperley ward
