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 understand the specific problems so that you can use it as evidence to target campaigns to change negative behaviours and prevent littering. 

We have recently launched our new litter survey tool as part of our Clean Up Scotland online portal. 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.


Completing a survey is simple. Just follow these steps:

1. Download our useful survey info pack

2. Find your grot spot to survey and download or print off our survey form.

3. Upload your results to your account on our online portal


We are currently developing tools and resources to help you with designing and rolling out campaigns to target localised issues. Our current resources can be found here. In the meantime we'd love to hear any activities and interventions you have tried so that we can celebrate your success and inspire others to do the same. Email us at cleanup@keepscotlandbeautiful.org with any information.
