Litter Strategy 2022-2027

This is our first Litter Strategy and we are one of the first local authorities in Scotland to do this. Our commitment is aligned with the National Litter and Flytipping Strategy, which views litter and fly-tipping as a blight on our local communities and natural environments. 

The Litter Strategy covers the period 2022-2027 and provides a framework for a range of plans, policies, and environmental initiatives that drive our commitment to preventing litter, dog fouling, and fly-tipping. It also sets out the objectives, outputs, activities, and expected outcomes for the council, its partners, and its communities.

The overall vision for the Litter Strategy for South Lanarkshire is:

  • To be a cleaner place to live, work and visit; free of litter, fly-tipping, and dog waste

The strategy will be underpinned by:

  • Encouraging awareness, behaviour change, and personal responsibility 
  • Working in partnership with all stakeholders, communities, and community groups
  • Meeting legislative requirements of the Code of Practice on Litter and Refuse (Scotland) 2018
