Bridlington Town Council
Since the start of the year the East Riding of Yorkshire Council has issued, in the Bridlington area, two FPNs for failing to clean up after a dog - one in Bridlington and one on Sewerby cliff tops. In addition, two FPNs have been issued to owners for allowing their dog to be in the dog exclusion part of Bridlington beach.
Dog owners are reminded to obey the dog laws as patrols are taking place; not all Dog Wardens are in uniform, but they will carry identification. To report offenders, please contact the Dog Wardens on 01482 396301 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Biodegradable Doggy Bags
The BioBag is a biodegradable & compostable dog waste bag, which has the following advantages:
- Reduces short- and long-term littering effects
- Can be treated hygienically in sewage plants with sludge digestion and will biodegrade quickly under these conditions
- Allows the moisture to evaporate so contents dry out (if they are stood upon, they won’t produce the usual mess)
- Leak-proof, allows aerobic biodegradation and prevents smell that occurs when dog waste ferments in a closed plastic bag
- Bio-plastic bag based on corn starch and vegetable oil, and does not contain any polyethylene
- Certified as compostable according to the European Standard EN-13432 (will biodegrade within 45 days under composting conditions)
Residents are now able to take advantage of a cost price product with the added bonus of using a product that is cleaner and more environmentally friendly for the town.
