FAQ: What to Do If I Find a Litter Problem

Q: What should I do if I find a litter problem in my neighbourhood?
A: If you find a litter problem in your neighbourhood, you can report it to the council. Follow these steps:

  1. Report the Litter Issue: Complete South Lanarkshire Waste and Ground Services form online form to report the issue. Provide as much information as possible, such as the exact location and the nature of the problem.
  2. Provide Detailed Information: When reporting, include details such as:
  • The specific location of the litter (e.g., street name, landmark)
  • The type of litter (e.g., bottles, cans, food wrappers)
  • Any relevant photos, if possible
  1. Encourage Responsible Behaviour: While waiting for the issue to be resolved, encourage others in your community to dispose of litter responsibly and to report any issues they see.
  2. Participate in Community Clean-Ups: Consider organising or participating in community clean-up events to help keep your neighbourhood clean.
  3. Educate Others: Spread the word about the importance of keeping our environment clean and the negative impacts of littering. Educating others can help prevent litter problems in the future.

By reporting litter issues promptly and encouraging a collective effort to keep our neighbourhoods clean, we can make a significant difference in maintaining the beauty and safety of South Lanarkshire.
