The Summer Clean from May 28 - June 20 aims to encourage small, local actions to help tackle issues with litter.

Individuals looking to support the campaign are encouraged to: Organise a private event within your local community; Make your litter pick count and do a litter survey to help create a snapshot of litter in Scotland; Help to spread the message and encourage others to get involved.

Any events should follow the Scottish Government's guidance on restrictions levels for outdoor events and Keep Scotland Beautiful will continue to make the latest advice and support available for participants. The latest advice can be viewed here: https://www.keepscotlandbeautiful.org/media/1565937/group-litter-picking-guidance-and-faqs.pdf.

West Lothian Council’s Cleaner Communities Team will look to support local groups and individuals who wish to organise litter picking activities. Interested individuals and groups should email: [email protected]
