Oh, we have some “colloquial” councils; he’s not alone.  From the first
pages of google.co.uk search results for “inurl:.gov.uk "dog bin"” and
“inurl:.gov.uk "dog waste bin"”:

dog bin:

  * www.wakefield.gov.uk
  * www.darlington.gov.uk
  * www.solihull.gov.uk
  * www.lewes.gov.uk
  * www.tauntondeane.gov.uk
  * www.penwith.gov.uk

With a special mention for a home office site:

  * www.crimereduction.homeoffice.gov.uk

dog waste bin:

  * online-services.lincoln.gov.uk
  * www.east-northamptonshire.gov.uk
  * www.norfolk.gov.uk/
  * www.hartlepool.gov.uk
  * www.tandridge.gov.uk
  * www.wrexham.gov.uk
  * www.bradwell-pc.gov.uk


  * www.teignbridge.gov.uk
  * connect2.northamptonshire.gov.uk
  * www.stockton.gov.uk

I never thought I’d do an analysis of dog poo and councils.  Time for a
map showing the distribution? ☺
