Keep Britain Tidy – ‘Do it for your Dog’


As part of the Great British Spring Clean, Hexham Town Council supports the new ‘Do it for your Dog’ campaign recently launched by Keep Britain Tidy.

Research into Dog Fouling by Keep Britain Tidy found that 15% of dog owners admit to letting their dog poop in a public place without picking up, leading to 76% of adults stepping in dog poop in their lifetime.

This is why we’ve launched our latest campaign to tackle this noxious problem. The campaign features dogs as the messenger, appealing directly to dog lovers and leveraging the levers of both pride and shame to remind owners to pick-up their poop because it’s what their dog would want them to do.

More information on the campaign can be found on their website.
