The locations of 100 new dog bins across Hyndburn have been revealed.
Great Harwood is set to receive the largest number with 19 bins followed by St Andrews ward in Oswaldtwistle with 11 and Huncoat with 10.
All 15 wards across the borough will get new dog bins as part of a £15,000 scheme with the exact locations hand-picked by local councillors.
The Observer revealed in August how money had been set aside to increase the number of dog bins and fund an extra collection round to empty them in a bid to tackle dog waste problems.
It comes as residents voiced their frustration at the overflowing of bins at existing sites.
Observer reader Peter Joinson, of Moss Hall Road, snapped a picture of the dog bin on the footpath behind Accrington Cricket Club at the end of Livingston Road.
He said: “It's obviously a favourite for dog walkers and it's not the first time this bin has been overflowing as I've reported the problem to the Council before.
“I was just a bit miffed when I saw it as I was out with my dog. The Council are always going on about irresponsible dog owners not picking up but those responsible one's that do are being let down.
“I'm happy to hear about the 100 new dog bins but they need to make sure they are emptied regularly.”
Another overflowing dog bin at the side of the Tottleworth Bridge by the canal in Rishton was reported to was councillors last month for more regular emptying.
A review of how often the bin is emptied is now taking place.
Hyndburn Council said their street cleaning teams service more than 650 litter bins around the borough, which they empty at least twice a week, or when a hand sweeper passes.
Councillor Paul Cox, cabinet member for environmental services, welcomed the new dog bins and said street cleansing was on of their 'top priorities'.
He said: “We know that that dog fouling is a big concern for local people.
“We’ve investing £15,000 into the service and these extra 100 dog bins are being installed in all wards right around the borough, bringing the total to 300, plus another 54 within our parks, which our waste services and parks teams empty each week.
“All councillors have had a say in where the bins should be installed on their patch, based on residents feedback and the new bins will be going in over the coming month.”
