Twenty-two (22) dog waste bins were installed by The Nation Municipality to collect ONLY plastic bags containing dog excrement.
If you are a dog owner, these bins will make it simpler for you to dispose of your dog’s poop in a respectful manner.
Not only are plastic bags or dog poop left on the ground around the Village a health risk but they are also an eyesore for everyone. It is YOUR civic responsibility as a dog owner to pick up after your dog at all times, be it on private or public property.
These small gestures in your daily routines will help maintain a clean environment for all of us. Do your part and pick up after yourself and your dog. Thank you for your contribution.

The bins (17) located at the following strategic points across the village of Limoges will be emptied on a weekly basis by municipal staff:
