Raising Awareness

We want to make sure that everyone who lives or works near the River Clyde or one of its tributaries knows about the extent of our marine litter problem and is motivated to keep the Clyde clean.

Do you live or work beside the River Clyde or one of its tributaries? Get in touch with us and tell us what you think of the litter problem. Are you already working to tackle litter? Do you know of a particular grotspot? Have photos you want to share? We would love to hear from you.
