A new company has taken over emptying dog bins across the Weston area after a number of missed collections.
Kent-based contractor Bin-It Ltd has had its contract terminated by Weston Town Council after a troubling December resulted in no collections and overflowing bins.
It was not invoiced for the past two months.
Bleadon-based Greenways Grounds Maintenance began on Monday and after three months its service will be reviewed.
Dog waste bins in Castle Batch park and in playing fields opposite Market Avenue in Worle were left overflowing for several weeks, while bins in Hutton were used to dispose of inappropriate animal waste, such as rabbit pellets and cat litter.
