Adopt a Dog Poo Bag Dispenser
The Dogs in Public Places Strategic Plan (DIPS) highlighted the management of dog waste as an important issue for those who use off leash areas.
An outcome of DIPS is for Council to provide dog poo bag dispensers, where there is an active community group or members willing to assist in the stocking and maintenance of the dispensers.
The dispensers are a small unit which hold biodegradable bags that allows dog owners to collect dog droppings while out walking.
Council has identified 14 dog off leash locations to install the dispensers and is currently looking for individuals, or community groups who are willing to adopt one in their off leash area.
The dispensers are durable, easy to use, easy to refill, and have a lock on them to reduce the risk of theft and vandalism. Council will provide adoptees with the keys for their dispenser and a stock of refillable bags.
For more information on the Adopt a Dispenser program, please contact Council on 4780 5000 or email email@example.com to request an expression of interest application form.
