Litter, bins and street sweeping

South Lanarkshire Council reports on standards of street cleanliness through Keep Scotland Beautiful. Three surveys are carried out each year and in 2015/16 we were rated the third cleanest in the country.

This is thanks to both the work of the council and public effort to dispose of litter appropriately.

Litter is a social and environmental problem and we spend millions of pounds every year cleaning it up.

Litter affects the overall image of an area and although South Lanarkshire consistently scores well in comparison to other council areas, we know that it's still an issue that you feel strongly about.
