Towards a Litter-Free Scotland

Consultation on a strategy to tackle and prevent litter and flytipping – Analysis of Responses to the Public Consultation

The Scottish Government published the consultation paper ‘Towards a litter-free Scotland’ on 4 July 2013, with written responses invited until 27 September 2013.

The consultation put forward a package of complementary measures designed to challenge individuals who litter and flytip, support those who already dispose of their waste responsibly and encourage more recycling.

An analysis of responses to the consultation was carried out by our delivery partner Zero Waste Scotland, and can be viewed on the Zero Waste Scotland website at:

In addition, the responses to the Consultation that we have permission to publish have been placed on the Scottish Government website.  These can be viewed at:

The responses are now helping us to reach a decision on the final content of our National Litter Strategy for Scotland – the first since devolution – which we aim to publish later this year.
