SIXTY-NINE new and replacement dog waste bins are planned for the borough.
Of the 53 sites proposed for them around Ellesmere Port and Neston, 31 are new.
Made of powder-coated metal, the bins will withstand vandalism and are lockable to prevent damage or retrieval of the waste.
A borough council report says: “The list of sites was collated using known hot-spots and elected member and community requests (from residents).
“In some cases, requested sites have been varied slightly to take account of previous local complaints.”
The borough will actually buy 89 of the bins, leaving 20 on one side in case they need a replacement quickly.
The report adds: “The revenue costs associated with this project have been identified and resolved. This will cover weekly or twice-weekly emptying of the bins, the frequency depending on the site.
“The cost is expected to be £3,000 in 2008/09 and £10,000 in 2009/10.”
This last figure includes the separate cost of emptying new recycling bins across the borough.
