How to report it
As a member of the public, there is a lot you can do. You can help our Clean Up Scotland campaign by reporting incidents of littering, flytipping, graffiti and dog fouling.
We have produced a guide to help you through this process. Click the relevant link below to contact your local authority:
If, despite your complaints, the Duty Body has failed to keep its area up to standard for a longer-than-acceptable period of time, you can take legal action to have the litter removed.
You can make a formal complaint (either to a hotline, if your Council has one, or the Cleansing, Environmental Health or Technical Services Department). If, despite this, the Duty Body fails to rectify the problem, you can apply for a Litter Abatement Order, enforceable by a Sheriff, which requires action from the Duty Body.
This can be complicated and time-consuming, but if you have the patience it has worked before!
