Dog walkers in Auckland's Remuera and Pt Chevalier have been leaving poo bags where rubbish bins used to be.

The council's been removing bins with low historical use since last November to save money.

Orakei Local Board member Troy Churton says the protest is duly noted, but it's no reason to keep dump dog faeces.

"I can definitely raise this with my board - and will do so - that some of the bins we've taken can be reinstated."
