Community leaders have hit out after bags from an overflowing dog bin ended up strewn across an Aberdeen street.
A call has now been made for people to to report bins crammed to the brim to Aberdeen City Council.
This comes after an overflowing bin led to bags being littered across Berrywell Walk.
Other streets affected by dog fouling include Balloch Way, Glentanar Crescent and Fergus Place.
Bags can also be put in regular rubbish bins if the area’s designated dog bins are full.
Councillor Gill Al-Samarai, who represents the Dyce, Bucksburn and Danestone areas, said: “It’s always disappointing when an area is affected by dog fouling. It is not helped when dog bins are overflowing, as it impacts not only the immediate but neighbouring environment too.
“I would encourage residents to report these to the council or they can contact myself and I will report these on their behalf.”

Dog fouling is an offence, with any person caught failing to clean up after their pet facing an £80 charge, which will rise to £100 if not paid within 28 days.
Vera Paxton, a current member and former chairwoman of Dyce and Stoneywood Community Council, said dog fouling is an ongoing issue.
She said: “This has been a problem in the Dyce area for a long time.
“It’s not the fault of the dogs, it’s the owners that are the problem.
“Some of the main pavements in Dyce are a mess with it at times.
“I don’t really know what can be done about it.
“It’s just down to irresponsible dog owners, and not all owners are irresponsible.”
Aberdeen City Council have been contacted for comment.
