There have long been calls for more dog bins in Bruton, and the Town Council is delighted to announce that there are to be more coming very soon – and would like your help in deciding the best place to put them.

We have always been limited in the number of dog bins in town by how many South Somerset District Council were prepared to empty. However they have now told us that they are able to empty two additional bins. The Town Council has therefore voted funding to buy and site these extra bins.

So where should they go? If you’re a dog owner, or a walker who has spotted a particular black spot, please say where you would like an extra bin in the comments. We’ll then draw up a shortlist from that at the end of the month.

Bear in mind that it’s now considered perfectly OK to use regular litter bins for bagged dog waste, as well as the dedicated dog bins.
