Dog waste bins

We provide dog waste bins at many sites throughout Bedford Borough for dog owners to dispose of dog mess, preventing the spread of disease.

If you can’t find a dog waste bin, you can put your bagged dog mess in a normal street litter bin.

Find your nearest dog waste bin. 

More information about responsible dog ownership is available in our dog control section.
