Litter, bins and street sweeping
The Code of Practice on Litter and Refuse (CoPLAR) provides statutory guidance to organisations with a duty to fulfil the legal requirements of the Environmental Protection Act 1990.
We have a duty to:
- keep our land clear of litter and refuse
- keep our roads clean
The CoPLAR explains what the duties are, who is responsible, what types of land are in scope and how to zone land and roads based on the likelihood of issues.
Land and roads in South Lanarkshire have now been zoned in line the guidelines and can be seen on this map.
