One of the aims of the ACE web-site is to provide easy access to useful information for people interested in doing more to keep the environment clean and green. Many people have said that they they lack information or feel
confused about about issues relating to waste and littering. The map of confusion provides a visual illustration of just how complex these issues can appear to members of the public.
towards the Angus Litter Summit helped ACE to piece together the jigsaw and we now realise that there is a lot of information out there if one knows where to look. For example, Zero Waste Scotland provides an extensive information resource via their web-site
and litter specific tool-kits. In addition, Keep Scotland Beautiful not only provide useful sources of information and advice but directly support community groups, schools and businesses. Similarly, the Marine Conservation Society is an important source of
information and encourages beach cleaning across the UK raising awareness about the global problem of marine litter. Our Local Authority, Angus Council, provides specific information relating to all aspects of waste management and recycling. For more
information from these organisations we would encourage you to visit their web-sites directly or find out more from the pages on this web-site.
We have made available various reports and documents of interest
