A key way in which we can work to prevent litter in our communities is to produce a Litter Prevention Action Plan (LPAP). Developing a LPAP involving all stakeholders helps to identify where the litter hot spots are and to identify
ways of reducing litter in these locations. Zero Waste Scotland and Keep Scotland Beautiful have lots of good ideas including tool kits and various resources for public use. Work is also going on in Angus to raise awareness amongst businesses and schools
to do everything possible to reduce littering at source.
Just imagine what a difference it would make if every school, every business, community group and organisation produced a litter prevention action plan to feed into a high level
overarching plan for Angus.
If you would like to develop a LPAP for your area please visit the Zero Waste Scotland web-site where you can obtain helpful advice and LPAP templates. Once complete you are able to upload your LPAP to the
Zero Waste Scotland's portal This portal allows organisations and groups to showcase the action we are taking to prevent litter and flytipping across Scotland.
