Tidy Towns bat­tle dog foul­ing

Bray People - - ABOUT GREYSTONES -

DOG FOUL­ING is an oft-lamented is­sue in Grey­stones and David O’Reilly of Tidy Towns con­tin­ued the bat­tle last week with the launch of a new sten­cil.

‘We love dogs - we hate poo’ is the slo­gan painted on foot­paths in pop­u­lar walk­ing ar­eas in­clud­ing the South Beach dog walk.

‘As the two pet shops have closed in the town I have also or­dered re­ally good dog poo bags which I in­tend ask­ing lo­cal businesses to give out free to dog own­ers,’ said David.

He said there was much fun and mirth at the launch last Thurs­day in Grey­stones.

The spray­ing of the sten­cil will start at var­i­ous lo­ca­tions around the town this week. Res­i­dents as­so­ci­a­tions can get in touch if they have an is­sue in their es­tate and would like to be in­cluded.

‘Grey­stones has a large dog pop­u­la­tion and in the main most dog own­ers are re­ally re­spon­si­ble and pick up af­ter their dogs,’ said David, adding that some dog own­ers said there is a short­age of bins.

Bags will be avail­able from dis­pensers at the des­ig­nated red bins and also or­di­nary mu­nic­i­pal bins.
