ACR+ member Zero Waste Scotland has launched a nationwide initiative calling on businesses, local authorities and other organisations to help cut the cost of litter clean-up and join forces to prevent it from happening in their communities.

Organisations across the public, private and third sector in Scotland are being invited to lead their communities in the fight against litter and flytipping by developing Litter Prevention Action Plans. It’s part of nationwide efforts to change behaviour and attitudes towards dropping litter.

Participants to the initiative will receive support from Zero Waste Scotland to identify the litter prevention actions that make up their action plans. Actions could be as simple as putting posters up in windows to discourage customers from littering, storing waste correctly, including litter prevention messages in staff inductions, and making sure any external areas of an organisation’s premises are cleared of litter.
