Clean Up Scotland
Clean Up Scotland is our national campaign to build community pride and make Scotland the 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 by providing Clean Up kits, posters, and other materials to help spread the message that a litter free environment is beneficial for well-being, community spirit and environmental sustainability. To date, Clean Up Scotland has supported over 580,000 participants to remove over 5,500 tonnes of litter.
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.
