Islanders had the chance to name and shame the worst parts of Jersey for dog mess, and the results have now been released:

  • Havre des Pas
  • Jardin d'Olivet
  • La Pouquelaye
  • Noirmont Point
  • Portelet Common
  • Ouaisne Common
  • Queen’s Valley
  • Reservoir
  • Rue des Près footpath
  • St Ouen’s sand dunes
  • St Catherine's Woods

Eco Active are going to be working to tackle the problem, in the named areas.

Campaign posters, badges and free emergency biodegradable bin bags are all available, with further details on the States of Jersey website.

The campaign will be launching soon. Credit: Eco Active

Identifying the worst affected parts of the Island will help us to focus our efforts. Obviously, we want the message to get out across the whole of Jersey but now we understand the areas where some extra targeted work is needed.

Our resources are now in pet shops, garden centres, the Animal Shelter, parish halls and veterinary surgeries. If any business or community centre would like to act as a distribution point, we’d be very happy to hear from them.

The resources include poo bags, badges and stickers. We hope that by drawing attention to this issue, the public will help persuade people to be responsible and help reduce the amount of dog poo across Jersey.”
