Picking up after your dog

No one likes stepping in dog poo, whether it's in an open space or on a footpath.

Central Goldfields Shire residents are encouraged to show courtesy for others by picking up after their dogs.

Picking up after your dog also means you are doing the right thing by the environment. Some dog droppings contain harmful bacteria and nutrients. When dog droppings are left outdoors and it rains, harmful bacteria from the droppings can be washed down drains and end up in local creeks.

To make it easier for people to pick up after their dogs, there are dog poo bag dispensers located at the following locations:
• Goldfields Reservoir, Maryborough
• Lake Victoria, Princes Park, Maryborough
• Velodrome, Maryborough
