Complete litter surveys in your community
Want to get an understanding of the specific litter problems in your community? Complete one of our surveys to find out what items and behaviours you should be tackling.
We know that across Scotland litter, dog fouling and flytipping levels continue to be the worst in a decade. Through community litter picks, individuals, community groups and schools will all have an idea of what their specific problems are, but we want to support you to confidently identify the specific problems so that you can use it as evidence to target campaigns to change negative behaviours and prevent littering. Litter surveys will also contribute to national evidence around litter and irresponsible behaviour.
Our new citizen science toolkit is designed to help you gather evidence and use it to take preventative action against litter in your communities. Use the guidance below and our Clean Up Scotland online portal to find out more. The survey follows the success of our Upstream Battle surveys that individuals and anchor groups were completing in their communities around the Clyde. Check out the most recent report of the findings across the Clyde Valley.
