There are lots of things you can do maintain your safety and that of others whilst litter picking. 

Dress for the weather. Wear strong shoes 

Use Gloves

Hi-Viz jackets

 Use a litter picker especially for sharp or dirty items.

They can  be bought quite cheaply. You  can also loan one from a local litter hub or join

Adopt-A-Street

Take care not to overfill bags. If required leave them near a bin but let the Council know immediately so that people don't think it has been

fly-tipped.

Bags left near bins encourage other people to fly-tip.

If you are registered with Adopt-A-Street you can obtain some AAS labels.

Take great care on the verges.

Wear hi-viz clothing.

Keep off the road.

Remain vigilant  and don't put yourself or other users at risk.

 

Many Local Authorities have services in place to close roads for litter picking

If you pledge to clean an area you care about on a regular basis Angus Council will provide you with a free litter picker and hoop.

In normal times you can go along to your local Access Office to sign the pledge and collect your litter picker and hoop. 

During the pandemic you can download the pledge form and

e-mail it back to angusisace@gmail.com

We will then ensure that it is submitted to Angus Council and your litter picker and hoop will be provided.

Our Story

Pride in Place with a Local Group

Many community groups across Angus are involved in clean up activities as part of their regular ongoing commitment to taking pride in the places that they  live.  Most of them have Facebook pages where they advertise events.

They provide a great opportunity to do your bit for the environment at the same time  as making friends and meeting new people.

Prevent  Fly-Tipping and Report it if you see it

We need to educate our friends and neighbours to make sure they check out adverts from 'Man with Van'. If somebody is removing waste the householder must check that they are registered  on the SEPA web-site as a  licensed carrier.       

 http://apps.sepa.org.uk/rocas/

If they are not registered they are likely to fly-tip your waste and you as the householder are personally responsible for their actions. 

If you witness fly-tipping  anywhere in  Scotland obtain as much information as you safely can and report it to the Local Authority. Angus Council provide useful guidance on their web-site. 

"Please give us the location and a description of what has been dumped and, if possible, any information on who left the material or the registration number of the vehicle from which it was dumped. The council can issue fixed penalty notices of £200 for fly-tipping and courts can impose a penalty of up to £40,000".

Where items are fly-tipped on private ground the Council will still try to find the culprit but the landowner is responsible for clearing away the

fly-tipping.

Angus Council have opened up a new fund aimed at preventing fly-tipping and anybody can apply including private landowners. Check out details of the fund on Angus Council's 'Community Clean Up and Fly-tipping Prevention Funding'  page
