Reports and Publications
ACE aims to provide easy access to useful information for people interested in doing more to keep their environment clean and green. Many people have said that they lack information or feel confused about issues relating to waste and littering.
Working 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.
