National Litter Strategy Review

Scotland’s first National Litter Strategy ‘Towards a Litter Free Scotland: a Strategic Approach to Higher Quality Local Environments’ was published in 2014.

This strategy promoted a new approach to litter, focusing on prevention instead of clean-up.

A strategy review was completed in November 2019 by The Scottish Government in partnership with Zero Waste Scotland and other key partners.

This review provides a snapshot of activities that took place within the first five years of this strategy and does not reflect challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. This review outlines areas of success, good practice case studies and an initial view on what the focus could be for future strategy development.

Since 2014, the landscape within which the Strategy operates has altered significantly. Scottish Government in partnership with Zero Waste Scotland and other key partners are developing a new National Litter and Flytipping Strategy which will allow a refreshed approach to tackling these challenges.
