National litter and flytipping strategy consultation

Closes 31 Mar 2022

Opened 13 Dec 2021


This consultation, which was drafted in partnership with Zero Waste Scotland, Keep Scotland Beautiful and Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA), is seeking views on the aims, objectives and actions that will sit under, the new National Litter and Flytipping Strategy for Scotland. 

These proposed actions sit within three strategic themes that were agreed by stakeholders:

  • Behaviour change
  • Services and infrastructure
  • Enforcement

Evaluating the progress and effectiveness of the strategy is also acknowledged to be of vital importance. Data and research has been recognised as a cross-cutting theme and comprises an integral and essential part of the other three themes listed above.
