Zero Waste Scotland has launched a new initiative encouraging organisations to take action and reduce litter. The initiative is open to any organisation in Scotland that wants to demonstrate their commitment to the environment and their community.

To take part, just download and complete the litter prevention action plan form and send it over. Some examples of the actions you could undertake include:

  • Display litter preventions posters around your premises
  • Follow Zero Waste Scotland on your social media and promote litter prevention messages
  • Download and share with your staff our litter prevention guides
  • Make sure your bins are put out for collection at the right time
  • Provide sufficient litter and recycling bins at your premises
  • Make sure any external areas of your business are regularly cleared of litter

Please note: This resource was updated on 22/12/17 to include an example completed plan from City of Glasgow college. Available to download from the right of this page.

Zero Waste Scotland can provide expert advice, support and a range of tools which can help you identify where you can take action. You can also be assigned a litter advisor to help identify the most appropriate actions for your institution, and help develop your action plan.

The consultant contact details for Litter Prevention Action Plans is Helen Sankey, Ricardo EE.

Zero Waste Scotland is a regular contributor to our Waste Management Topic Support Networks, most recently visiting our July 18th 2017 meeting at the University of Dundee to discuss this new initiative. The minutes from this presentation and the discussion around this topic are available here
