INCA council is trying to encourage dog owners to clean up their pets’ wees.
The Environment department has been giving out bottles to dog owners which the local authority hopes they will use to carry liquid for cleaning up pavements after their pooches with the aim of promoting co-existence and civic behaviour and keeping the town’s streets stain and odour-free.
Civic Agents have also been handing out the bottles, which include recommendations on use, for example including vinegar in the mix, and a request to dog owners to not let their pets urinate on walls, lampposts and urban furniture.
The initiative comes under the SOIB VISIBLES 2019-2020 programme, which is promoted by the Balearic Island Occupation Service, and co-financed by the State through the Sectorial Conference and by the Fund for the ITS Sustainable Tourism Drive, and actioned by the council.
