There are many ways you can support us clean up Scotland. Use our pages to find out how you can get involved in our Clean Up Scotland campaign.
There are many different ways to help improve your local area. Organising a local Clean Up event is a great way to make a real difference and we have lots of information to help you, including our Clean Up information and survey pack.
If you would like to join a Clean Up happening near you, have a look at our events near you page to see what’s going on in your local area and find out how you can join in. If there are no events currently open in your area, you can have a look at our guidance on organising a Clean Up.
Another option for taking action against litter is to carry out a litter survey. This simple survey covers a 100 metre stretch, is easy to complete and is fully explained in our Clean Up info and survey pack. In addition, by sending the results back to us, you will be helping us to build a community led picture of Scotland's local environmental quality.
If you are interested in doing even more to prevent litter, check out our Litter Pick Plus toolkit, which is packed full of further project ideas and advice for you to try.
We have a range of mascot costumes which are free to hire for community groups, schools and organisations. We want to support you to tailor campaigns in your local community and mascot costumes are a fun way of raising awareness of serious environmental issues.
Does someone you know go that extra mile to keep their local area clean? Why not nominate them for our Clean Up Hero award? There’s even a great prize for those who are awarded.
