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. Scottish Land & Estates will be responding to this consultation and encourages members to submit their own response.
The consultation sets out how 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.
You can view the consultation on the Scottish Government website.
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 email the ‘EQ CAT’ mailbox above.
