We need your help to keep Colintraive and Gendaruel clean and tidy!

General

Below some hints and tips to help keep our villages clean and tidy:

  • On windy days, secure the lid on your bin or put something heavy on your recycle bag so no refuse can blow around the village!
  • Be a responsible dog owner. Do not let your dog out unsupervised and remember “Scoop it, Bag it, Bin it”!
  • When going for a walk, take a small plastic bag along and pick up any small rubbish items to dispose of in your bin.
  • Report potholes, fly tipping and severe dog fouling to Argyll and Bute Council so that they can fix it (see tabs on this page on the different ways of reporting these problems)

Remember – Scoop it, Bag it, Bin it
Dog Fouling is unsightly and irresponsible on the part of the dog owner. Argyll and Bute Council is designated under the Dog Fouling (Scotland) Act. This means that it is an offence to allow a dog to foul designated land and not clean it up immediately. Any area of land which is open to the air, on at least one side, to which the public have access, either with or without charge (including parks, recreation areas, foot paths, grass verges, roadside gutters etc.) is classed as designated land.

If you have a dog fouling problem in your area, you can report it by phoning Argyll and Bute Council Contact Centre on 01546 605514, by emailing them , or by using their online reporting form
