Rubbish at KCC Park

Wednesday, 24 July 2019

Our facilities at KCC Park are the envy of many dog enthusiasts around the world. It is a world class facility owned by the members for the members. However, we need to take care of it.
 
A simple start would be to clean up all the rubbish that we generate at shows and place in the bins provided. Pick up all our dog droppings and dispose correctly.
 
Sadly at recent shows, our new off lead areas have had multiple dog faeces left in them. In addition, exhibitors using the indoor pavilion have left rubbish on the floor and outside the pavilion litter ranging from coffee cups to cigarette butts. Dog clippings from dogs exhibited at our events is another issue. If you do groom your dog, please clean up all hair left on the ground and dispose correctly. Sadly we even had nappies left on the ground!
 
We have received more complaints after the three shows and various outdoor activities at KCCP last weekend from members not picking up their dog droppings all over KCC Park. This includes the off lead exercise areas, garden beds next to the pavilion, back of the pavilion, and even multiple dog droppings all over the front mound along Westernport Highway.
 
This is extremely disappointing and we ask all individuals to be responsible dog owners and show courtesy to their fellow members. 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 these droppings can be washed down the drains and end up in local creeks.
 
Remember at KCC Park – ‘Bag It and Bin It.’

If a member sees someone not picking up after their dog, please ask them to do so. We have multiple bins/scoopers across the site, please use them.
 
So we ask one and all to be respectful when using your member facility and be appreciative of the privilege. If we do not care for our Park, no one will. Your co-operation is greatly appreciated.
 
If you have any ideas, comments or concerns, or want to become a volunteer and join the Friends of the Park group please contact Janet at Dogs Victoria via pa@dogsvictoria.org.au
