Welsh council launches new approach to tackle dog fouling

Hawarden Community Council, in Flintshire, has introduced a dispenser scheme in Aston, Ewloe, Hawarden and Mancot in a bid to reduce the amount of dog poo left in community areas.

The scheme has seen poo bag dispensers attached to lampposts in areas of heavy dog fouling.

Hawarden and Mancot Councillor Sam Swash, who put forward the proposal, said: “This is the first batch of dispensers, there will be more getting delivered and attached to lamp posts in the coming weeks.

“Hopefully they’ll help reduce dog fouling – if they’re successful, the community council will provide us with more to put up.”

Hawarden Community Council intends to measure the success of the scheme over the next six months before deciding whether to expand it.
