New dog bag dispensers for residents to clear up after their pooch have been installed across West Berkshire.
A total of 37 have been set up in a project led by West Berkshire Council’s countryside team to issue free, bio-degradable bags to dog owners.
They are located on recreation grounds, public access land and rights of way.
There are seven in Newbury, 11 in Thatcham, five in Greenham, six in Holybrook, three in Pangbourne and five in Purley.
Dominic Boeck, the council’s executive member for the environment, said: “I am very pleased that we have been able to install these new stations.
“Generally, dog owners in West Berkshire are very responsible when it comes to clearing up as they go, but the addition of 37 new bag stations will make it even easier and more convenient for them and to ensure our streets and parks are kept clean.”
The bags and stations have been supplied by Tikspac UK. Spokeswoman Pamela Cunningham said: “We’re delighted to provide these dog bag dispensers in key dog walking locations across the district to help everyone enjoy West Berkshire’s green spaces.”
