Zero Waste Scotland said it is seeking new, innovative ideas to help prevent and tackle the impact of litter and flytipping across Scotland with the launch of three calls for projects, today, Saturday, 5 July.

The aim of the three programmes - Infrastructure and Enforcement; Innovation and Product and Service Development - is intended to encourage creative, workable solutions in tackling Scotland’s litter problem.

"Ideas could include incentives to encourage more community clean-ups; redesign of products and services to reduce some of Scotland’s most commonly-littered items, such as increasing use of electronic receipts or reusable coffee cups or redesigning waste/recycling services to prevent accidental litter, blown by the wind," said a ZWS spokesperson.

The funds are part of the delivery for the Scottish Government’s national litter strategy, Towards a Litter-Free Scotland, launched last month by cabinet secretary for rural affairs, food and the environment, Richard Lochhead, and supported by Zero Waste Scotland.
