Towards a Litter-Free Scotland: Consultation on a strategy to tackle and prevent litter and flytipping

The Scottish Government has published its draft National Litter Strategy for consultation.  This focuses on action that will help prevent litter and illegal dumping.  It encourages people to take greater personal responsibility, and includes support for organisations to help solve the problem.  

The consultation sets out how the Scottish Government intend to:
  • Help people understand why binning waste responsibly matters
  • Make it easy for people to do so
  • Highlight that littering and flytipping are socially unacceptable.
They are inviting written responses by 27 September 2013. Early responses are appreciated. 
A consultation event is expected to be held at Victoria Quay, Edinburgh, on 30 August. If you would like to attend or receive more details when they are available please get in touch
This consultation links with a consultation on proposals to create cleaner coastlines by tackling marine litter.  You can read details of both within our news release.
