Surrey Heath Borough Council announce in a press release on 12th December, [my photo of Tikspac site at Briars Centre, Lightwater].
Surrey Heath Borough Council has introduced trial TiksPac stations offering free dog waste bags across the borough.
The environmentally-friendly concept, which has been a success in Scandinavia, consists of units dispensing free biodegradable dog waste bags. They are located at footpaths, parks, recreation grounds and other public areas.
The six stations have been installed at Frimley Lodge Park; Lightwater Country Park; School Lane, Bagshot; The Briars Centre, Lightwater; Southcote Park and Watchetts Park, Camberley; and Frimley Recreation Ground.
It is hoped that if the trial is successful, the concept will be rolled out across the borough in the new year.
It is part of a concerted effort by the Council to reduce dog fouling across the borough, running alongside the glow in the dark ‘We’re Watching You’ posters launched last month, and in parallel with the ongoing Public Space Protection Orders (PSPO) consultation which deals with issues including irresponsible dog owners (www.surreyheath.gov.uk/pspo)
