Minding Your Dog
As well as making our village look beautiful Ballyduff Development Group also want to promote environmental awareness in the community.
We have had tremendous success with our litter control because of the help we have had from the whole community and this is especially seen in the number of people who have supported our Keep Wexford Beautiful & North Wexford 2K clean campaigns.
As well as trying to deal with litter Ballyduff Development Group members are promoting Wexford County Council's efforts to help people to be more aware of how they can help be responsible for their dogs when they bring them for walks along the roads in the Ballyduff area.
Wexford County Council's Green Dog Walker
Wexford County Council are running The Green Dog Walkers scheme to encourage responsible dog ownership in Wexford as dog fouling is among the most common forms of littering.
When you sign up to the scheme Wexford County Council will send you a complimentary Green Dog-Walkers high-vis vest, Green Dog-Walkers armband and a ‘doggie bone’ poop-bag dispenser with a roll of bags. By signing up you have ‘Taken the Pledge’ to always clean up after your dog, to carry extra doggie bags and to gladly give others a bag for their dog if they ask for one. By wearing the green armband you are indicating that you are a responsible dog–owner participating in and supporting the scheme.
Dog walkers can take the pledge by signing the form Green Dog Walkers Leaflet and returning it to Environment Section, Wexford County Council, Carricklawn, Wexford. This link will bring you to Wexford County Councils information page where you can find more information.
or you can download an application form here.
Thank you for your support!
