A FOOTPATH in Kenley appears to have become a dumping ground for dog mess.
Jeffrey Keys, who has lived in Furbisher Close for 20 years, said the situation had spiralled out of control with very little action from Croydon Council to clean it up.
He said: "The footpath leads on to Betts Mead recreation ground and the Kenley Common which provides bags for people to put their dogs' waste in.
"But for some reason, dog walkers feel like the footpath behind my house is a suitable place to dump it all.
"Luckily it doesn't smell too much but it is very unhygienic and unsightly. People don't want to take the bags home and put them in the bin because they don't get collected for two weeks so they just think, 'Oh, I'll throw it here'."
A Croydon Council spokesman said it tries to educate dog walkers about clearing up after their pets.
He added: "When issues such as this are brought to our attention we try and spend time talking to dog walkers and explaining how they should properly dispose of this waste."
