The stations have benefited the councils not only with the reduction in dog fouling but it also brings co-operation between us as a council and the individual town councils and volunteer groups as they often take delivery of the bags and refill the stations as and when needed.
Dover District Council
This is a great opportunity to work with communities and businesses to keep our district clean and safe for everyone, and to continue to encourage more people to take responsibility for cleaning-up after their pets.
Uckfield Town Council
This initiative encourages the thousands of dog owners across Uckfield to take responsibility for cleaning up after their pets when cut short with missing bags. Since the initial installation of the TiksPac stations, now provided by Eco Green Communities, we have seen a reduction in dog fouling within those locations.
Swale Borough Council
Between 2017-2020, We have seen a 30% reduction in reported dog fouling cases.
Brackley Town Council
The stations were put in place to try and help with a problem we had in Brackley Town with dog fouling. We were looking for something that would help with the problem, which was easy to use and operate without a huge cost.
Eco Green Communities
A survey of the councils we’re working with has shown that where stations are installed there’s an average decrease in dog fouling complaints of almost 50%, and a 57% decrease in overall littering in the same areas. That has to be a positive result.

Council Funded Model
Signposting space on the stations is also a key opportunity for Public Space Protection Orders and can be utilised against a variety of budgets where educating and communicating is key. Educate and empower the community to tidy up after themselves, to choose to do the right thing.
Our existing councils have utilised alternative fund pots to secure station funding where sponsorship is not required or wanted.
Bridgend Council is pleased to announce that they support Tikspac and are pleased to be a partner in this successful environmental initiative. With an initial 10 stations increased to 50 installed at key locations throughout the authority we have witnessed a remarkable change in people’s attitudes and feedback from our communities has been very positive.”
