ACR+ member Zero Waste Scotland has launched a brand new Litter Knowledge Network giving access to the advice and research from different sources and of several types. The comprehensive online resource brings together all the latest advice, expertise and support on litter prevention for the first time in Scotland, including the organisation’s in-depth research on scale, impact and attitudes to the problem. There are downloadable toolkits for stakeholder in easy-to-use format, to help specific local campaigns aimed at persuading the public not to drop litter.

The resource efficiency body also called on all those with a role in tackling littering in Scotland – such as local authorities, businesses, community groups and landowners – to contribute to the network with information, ideas, and good practice.

Zero Waste Scotland has developed a strong evidence base on the impacts of and attitudes to littering in Scotland which have been used to help inform litter and flytipping prevention initiatives.
