Clean Up Scotland

Clean Up Scotland is our national campaign to build community pride and make Scotland clean for future generations. But, with litter and flytipping levels at the worst in a decade, we need all the help we can get.

Across Scotland we continue to develop and support local groups and organisations to improve the places they love. We want to spread the message that a litter free environment is beneficial for well-being, community spirit and environmental sustainability.  

Our Spring Clean 2019 was supported by Scotmid Cooperative. This year, over 45,000 people across Scotland took action to help us #CleanUpScotland. Please take some time to read our report on the success. 

We're already planning for Spring Clean 2020. To make it a success we need to work together. Please get in touch if you have any exciting ideas or plans that we can incorporate into our planning for next year.

We also want to increase awareness and understanding of litter prevention using innovative interventions and caring for an area after it has been cleaned. We have developed the Litter Pick Plus toolkit to assist you to get even more out of your Clean Ups.  It offers suggestions on how to add extra activities to your Clean Ups, how to communicate about your events and how to turn these into an effective local campaign. By working to change long-term behaviour, we are aiming to make dropping litter as socially unacceptable as drink driving is today.

Our mission is to change behaviours and attitudes towards littering of all types, including flytipping, dog fouling and other litter sources.
