Dog Waste Bags

In line with our Climate Emergency Declaration, Westbury Town Council will be suspending distribution of free dog waste bags to residents.

Most dog waste bags available are made of plastic and are often marketed as oxo-biodegradable or oxo-degradable - both are classed as the same type of plastic and can produce microplastics as they degrade. These microplastics can find their way into our water courses and ultimately into the food chain and are a recognised issue.

Our suppliers have indicated that these types of plastics are likely to be banned at some point next year. The cost of other alternatives such as compostable and flushable bags are currently prohibitive. These alternatives also have questions on their sustainability and are often not as green as first appears.

Our Town Improvement Group will review this decision regularly and investigate alternative options as and when they become available.

We encourage dog owners to continue to clear up after their dogs and to help keep our streets waste free.

We thank you for your ongoing support and co-operation.

Air Quality Monitor

Here is the latest data from the Air Quality Monitor in Westbury.

The live data is still available on our website, however because of an issue at the source site (provided by the manufacturer), you have to wait a bit longer than usual for the data to load. You can load the data either using the map or the selecting the last monitor on the list (441).

On a weekly basis we will be sharing the data on Facebook, until the issue is resolved.

The data below is from 4th January 2021 – 11th January 2021. The monitor was moved during this period – on 4th/5th January it was still located on the junction of Redland Lane / Queens Road and from 8th January, it is now located on Leigh Road, near the Warminster Road junction.

More information on the monitor can be found on our website:
