Tidy Towns battle dog fouling
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.
