Network of free dog waste bag dispensers to be installed across Surrey Heath

Surrey Heath Borough Council announce,

Free dog waste bag units are to be installed across the borough following a successful trial by Surrey Heath Borough Council.

Six of the innovative TiksPac stations offering free biodegradable dog waste bags were installed at parks, footpaths and recreation grounds across Surrey Heath at the end of last year.

Following positive feedback from the public, reduced complaints about dog waste in these areas, and significant usage of the free bags by dog walkers, dispensers will soon be set up at more than 30 locations throughout the borough.

The original six stations were 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 part of a concerted effort by the Council to reduce dog fouling across the borough, building on the glow in the dark ‘We’re Watching You’ posters launched last winter.

Sponsorship opportunities for the new dispensers are available to local businesses, with the chance to support this community and environmentally-friendly initiative whilst also displaying their logo on every TiksPac unit across the borough. Any interested companies should contact Pam at TiksPac UK on 01925 593982, or email Stephen.forward@tikspac.co.uk.
