Help us clamp down on dog fouling by reporting it, you can:
We want to know:
The dog owner is responsible for cleaning up after their dog.
You should always pick up your dog waste and put it in the nearest litter bin. You can use any plastic bag and any litter bin, including your black bin at home. Don't put dog waste in your blue or brown bins as this can contaminate them.
If you do not pick up after your dog, you may receive a £80 fixed penalty notice. If paid within 10 days, the fine will be reduced to £50.
If you don’t pay this fine, we can take you to court where the fine could increase to up to £1,000.
You can pay a fine online for any dog fouling offences.
You'll need to enter your fixed penalty reference number which is on the top left of the fixed penalty notice. Please enter your reference number and surname in the exact format they appear on the notice. You will also need to enter your email address so we can send you a payment confirmation.
Before you pay, please read the terms and conditions for online services and our privacy statement.

If dog poo is an issue around your local area or school grounds, enter our 'design a billboard competition' and make a positive impact on your community.
We are asking schools to design a billboard poster based on the theme, ‘The impact of dog fouling in our community’. We will choose four winners, and the winning designs will be placed on a 48 sheet adverting billboard in the local area.
This challenge is for P5 to P7, and each year group may apply.
The Billboard Challenge is part of our campaign aiming to reduce dog fouling across Belfast.
Once we receive your confirmation of interest we will contact you to discuss the next steps.
