DOGS are good companions and help a lot of people mentally and physically. There seems to be exceptional numbers about and although owners collect the droppings, they are disposed of in bins usually. These bins are provided by the council and emptied by them at a cost to the ratepayer.

As pets are a lifestyle choice, should not licensing be brought back to help the costs of disposal of these little black bags?
